The Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art is pleased to announce the launch of a unique new digital installation and take home app for iPad developed by Tulsa-based semantic technology company Moomat.
Representatives from Moomat will be on hand to provide a demonstration at the joint iPad App Launch Party and the exhibit opening for the Alexander Calder Exhibit on Thursday, October 3 from 5:00p.m.-7:00p.m. in the Museum (2021 E 71st St/Tulsa, OK).
“This cutting edge technology allows people across the world to explore our Museum’s collections,” said Drew Diamond, Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art Executive Director. “The Sherwin Miller is dedicated to promoting Jewish heritage, history and culture through art and education. Thanks to Moomat and this new installation and app, we are able to share that mission locally and globally.”
“We’re excited to be working with such a forward thinking museum and are continuing to help them to develop new and interesting ways to increase the explorability and interactivity of their many other collections in the future,“ said Moomat CEO Daniel Mooney.
The first technology project between Moomat and the Museum was to create an interactive way for guests to explore the vast Fred Strauss Collection, an impressive collection of letters, postcards and stamps collected and curated since the 1940s that chronicle the history and traditions of the Jewish people.
The new iPad app will be a take home version of this collection that will allow anyone to download and explore in great detail, the collection, and how it connects with various aspects of Jewish culture and history. Plans are in motion to develop and release new digital installations revolving around the Museum’s extensive collections and to actively incorporate them in the commercial app.
