Museum of Modern Art, The Key Developments

Museum of Modern Art, The Introduces the MoMA Art Lab App for the Apple iPad

Museum of Modern Art, The introduced the MoMA Art Lab app for the Apple iPad, the Museum's first art-making app. Inspired by MoMA Art Labs, a series of interactive spaces at the Museum where kids and adults can engage with art through hands-on activities, the app offers an open-ended exploration of the various ways in which simple shapes and lines can be transformed into art. Through diverse learning activities and prompts for creative ideas, the Art Lab app encourages kids ages seven and up to think about artistic processes and experiment with shapes, lines, and colors--inspiring digital play. Activities, inspired by modern and contemporary artworks from MoMA's collection, include using virtual scissors to cut out shapes in the spirit of collages by Henri Matisse; shaking digital scraps of paper across the screen in homage to Jean (Hans) Arp's chance collages; covering rooms in colorful line designs, as in the work of Jim Lambie; and creating a sound composition based on art by Elizabeth Murray. Art Lab's drawing pad includes shapes that can be stretched, rotated, and shrunk using zoom and pinch motions, tools to create straight or freeform lines in differing widths, and a palette of over a hundred vibrant colors.
