Cell Phone Audio Tour for "Artists from France" Now Available

The cell phone audio tour for the exhibition, Artists from France: Paintings and Prints from the Art Museum Collection is now available. This is a free service offered by the UW Art Museum and provides additional information about each artist in this exhibition. Artists from France features work in various different media, from many genres and major artistic movements, including Surrealism, Pointillism and from the Barbizon school.

The cell phone audio tour provides biographic information on these artists and helps explain their artistic influences and the impact they had on the art scene throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As many of the works in this exhibition are works on paper, there is also a prompt that explains some of the printmaking techniques used in these works. See below for prompt numbers and instructions. Handouts are available at the Museum's front desk and on our website.
