An open-source platform for users to learn more about works at museums and engage in meaningful dialogue about the art. Aficionado also allows institutions and researchers to better gauge visitor interests and crowdsource a great deal of information about their digital images, including meaningful tagging of the content, colors, and genres of their images. Users use a phone app to look up a piece of art (currently by using museum accession numbers) and then view more information about the artist and the work itself, as well as a stream of comments left by other visitors. They are able to then join the discussion themselves and further explore the art.
Aww, bummer. There aren't any current projects for this organization. Check out other projects here.
