Hood Goes High-Tech with Free iPod Tours

Hood Quarterly, summer 2008

If you visited the Sean Scully exhibition over the winter, you may have encountered the Hood’s first iPod audio tour, which featured the artist’s personal comments on the paintings in the show.

We invite you to try our second iPod tour developed for Black Womanhood. It is designed to introduce you to the exhibition as a whole, familiarize you with the three different sections of the show, and describe how the art is thematically connected across sections. You can use the iPod menu to select the portions that you would like to hear as you move through the exhibition, and images of the works in the exhibition pop up on the iPod screen as you select them.

Audio tours will become a regular part of the interpretive materials available to visitors for major exhibitions, and we plan to develop similar tours in the future for the permanent collections
