Art Authority has announced the opening of the Art Authority Museum, which has been under construction for months as an Apple Vision Pro app.
The Museum is currently offering free pre-opening tours of its lobby, where users can experience dozens of the world’s most historically important artworks. From wherever in the world they may be.
To take the tour, Vision Pro users go to the Vision Pro App Store, download and run the free Art Authority Museum app. The app transports them to the immersive Museum lobby and begins a chronological tour, starting with the early Renaissance and including such defining works as da Vinci’s “Last Supper” and “Mona Lisa,” Michelangelo’s “Birth of Adam,” van Gogh’s “Starry Night,” Munch’s “The Scream,” Wood’s “American Gothic” and many others. Users can pause the tour through a simple tap of their fingers, and linger in front of the paintings for as long as they like.
The full Art Authority Museum remains under construction, with a grand opening planned for spring. When fully opened, patrons will be able to experience the Museum’s collection of tens of thousands of works by hundreds of the world’s major artists throughout history, according to Alan Oppenheimer, founding director of the Museum, and an Art Authority co-founder.. Entrance into the Lobby and select galleries will always be free, with memberships providing full access.
Members will also be able to take advantage of a number of transcendent features unavailable in any classic art museum, such as the ability to create their own galleries. Details of the Museum and updates on the opening are available on the Museum’s website at artauthority.museum.
