We are very happy to announce that CloudGuide has been chosen by the City of Liège (Belgium) as the digital platform for its new Museum of Fine Arts, La Boverie. Named after its surrounding park, the museum will be housed in a former building of the 1905 world exhibition.
Its opening was highlighted by the first of several annual exhibits of international masterpieces curated by the Louvre. The inaugural exhibition, entitled 'In the Open Air', was chosen to illustrate the strong link between the museum and its surrounding park. This show outlines, based on a chronological journey of 100 works, the emergence and gradual development of painting in the open air, from the 18th century to today.
La Boverie will start using iBeacon technology in order to provide visitors with a unique museum experience. Throughout the museum, more than 60 iBeacons are placed next to the works of well-known painters such as - Claude Monet, Paul Signac, Pablo Picasso, Paul Gauguin, Marc Chagall. The information about the artwork will automatically be displayed on the visitor's smartphone thanks to Bluetooth connection. This would enhance the visit and engage users with the most prominent works of art. La Boverie is very excited to start a colaboration with CloudGuide offering a great value experience to its visitors.
