This app complements The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s special exhibition Guitar Heroes: Legendary Craftsmen from Italy to New York. Through collaborations with musicians and experts, the app brings to life the guitar makers’ creative process and celebrates the enduring relevance of these instruments. It features museum-commissioned musical performances expressly designed for this exhibition, artist interviews, and rarely seen archival video footage.
The app may be used either as a guide to the exhibition or on its own, and once it is downloaded, no Internet connectivity is required to access its content.
Additional content and information about the exhibition is available at www.metmuseum.org/guitarheroes.
This app was developed by the Digital Media Department with the guidance and support of the Department of Musical Instruments at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The exhibition is made possible in part by Mr. and Mrs. Richard L. Chilton, Jr.
The multimedia tour is made possible by The Jonathan & Faye Kellerman Foundation.
The Audio Guide program is made possible by Bloomberg.
