Our smartphones enhance our fitness, travel, and dining experiences—why not our artviewing ones, too? TMApp, the Museum’s recently-launched smartphone application, provides audio commentary, scavenger hunts, multimedia guides, and other tools to take visitors beyond a work of art’s label. Available for Apple and Android devices, one of TMApp’s special features is a series of poems read by acclaimed Irish poet Paul Durcan, written about the TMA collection. Those who are smartphone-free but still want to use the app can borrow a device from the TMA info desk in Herrick Lobby.
