The Art Institute of Chicago, founded in 1879 and located in Chicago's Grant Park, is one of the oldest and largest art museums in the United States. With its permanent collection of nearly 300,000 works of art is augmented by more than 30 special exhibitions mounted yearly that illuminate aspects of the collection and present cutting-edge curatorial and scientific research, the Art Institute of Chicago can be a tough space to navigate.

For our proposal for the iPad app revamp, we decided to focus on creating a customizable experience for museum visitors based on their specific areas of interest. The ‘Build Your Journey’ section of the app organizes tags by time, place, material, medium, artist, topics and a lot more for you to be able to pick and choose from and create your own journey through the museum.

The app selects items in the museum that match your interest and organizes and displays them on a map that you can use with your GPS.  It also provides you additional information about the items not available in the collection notes, helps you find other related items from around the world, suggests tours and shows you should visit in the museum based on your tags.
