The Rodin Museum
Opened to the public in 1929 in a beautiful Beaux Arts building on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the Rodin Museum houses some 140 works in bronze, marble and plaster by the great French sculptor Auguste Rodin. A gift to the city from philanthropist and movie theatre magnate Jules Mastbaum, the Museum offers one of the most comprehensive collections of the artist’s work outside Paris.
This application presents thirty-one sculptures by Rodin with audio and visual information on the objects, the artist and the Museum in Philadelphia. Information is presented by a museum curator, conservator and architectural historian. Pinch screen technology allows for extreme close up views of each object. Users can select objects a random, follow one of three related themes, share experiences through social media, and contribute to the Museum’ s online presence through photo sharing.
