Virtual Gallerie (VG) clients include museums, galleries, universities, and other cultural institutions. Below are several examples of the different types of institutions that we work with and a description of each organization’s application for VG’s technology. Following that is a complete list of our clients.
A Variety of Clients
Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute
Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute , located in Williamstown, Massachusetts, is an art museum and a center for research and higher education, dedicated to advancing and extending the public understanding of art. In February 2012, The Clark opened the ongoing Clark Remix exhibit. In conjunction with the exhibit, Virtual Gallerie helped Swim Design create uCurate on top of the next generation of Virtual Gallerie software. Either in the gallery on large touchscreen monitors, or at home via the website, museum patrons design and publish their own exhibits using the obejcts in the actual Remix exhibit. The Clark is going to mount an actual exhibit based on a winning submitted exhibition. Virtual Gallerie also did the implementation of a tablet-based in-gallery metadata browser for objects in the exhibition.
Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art
Crystal Bridges is opened in Bentonville, Arkansas, on November 11th, 2011. The museum was founded by Alice Walton, the daughter of Walmart founder Sam Walton, designed by architect Moshe Safdie, and includes 50,000 feet of gallery space, a library, a 250-seat auditorium, as well as offices, the whole surrounded by gardens and walking trails. VG has built 3D models of all of Crystal Bridges galleries for the purpose of planning the museum’s exhibitions prior to its opening.
The University of Michigan Museum Studies Program
The University of Michigan Museum Studies Program was In the College of Literature, Science and the Arts at the Universtiry of Michigan, students within the museum studies program use Virtual Gallerie in class to facilitate in their learning of the art of curation. VG was hired by the university to build a 3D model of one of their actual gallery spaces, and the students are able to curate within this space.
University of Oklahoma (OU)
The University of Oklahoma was founded in 1890 and is a public research university in Norman, Oklahoma. OU has a world class museum on campus called the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art which has an 8,000-object permanent collection and recently expanded by 34,000 square feet of additional gallery space. VG provided OU with its 3D software for the museum to build its own 3D model of the new gallery spaces for exhibit planning and remote online access to their collection and art exhibitions.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum (NBHOF)
NBHOF is located in Cooperstown, New York, and it is one of the country's most popular destinations. The Museum is a three-story red brick building; and it serves as a repository for baseball’s treasures, as well as the historic Hall of Fame Gallery, where the plaques of all 256 Hall of Fame members line the oak walls. VG has worked with NBHOF since 2004 in recreating 3D models of old classic baseball stadiums that were torn down in the last 100 years. The museum’s newest exhibit, Sacred Ground, features virtual tours of these stadiums where visitors can “walk-through” them, view multimedia content, and experience interactive 3D on a large 15’ x 10’ curved screen.
