Glynn Vivian launches new digital guide to enrich art gallery visit


The free guide joins hundreds of cultural institutions around the globe on the Bloomberg Connects app.

Glynn Vivian has launched a new, digital guide on Bloomberg Connects, the free arts and cultural app created by Bloomberg Philanthropies. The Bloomberg Connects app, available for download from Google Play or the App Store, makes Glynn Vivian accessible for either onsite or offsite visits through photo, audio and video features offering insights into exhibitions, collections, and programme.

Exclusive content on the app includes an audio introduction by Peter Wakelin, son of Swansea-based artists Richard and Rosemary Wakelin, to the Wakelin at 25 exhibition, as it celebrates 25 years of the award founded in their memory, supported by the Friends of the Glynn Vivian.

Users of the app can also listen again to past exhibitions talks and discussions with invited guest speakers, artists, writers and curators, including the Thinking Green: Geodome talks podcast series where artist Owen Griffiths uses the collection as a tool to explore our relationship to land use and landscape, as we embark on the work of rethinking the gallery garden.

Karen MacKinnon, Curator, Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, said:

“This is a fantastic free resource that will allow us to creatively share insights into the collection, upcoming exhibitions and our learning and engagement programme’s. It will enable us to reach a global audience with all the amazing things we have to offer, as well as to share previously unseen insights and pertinent information to much wider audiences.”
