According to SmartMobs, SFMOMA is offering a $2 admission discount to museum visitors who present an mp3 player loaded with their Artcast files. They’re also hosting an “Artcast Invitational,” in which artists and wannabe curators can submit their own podcasts. Winning recordings will win a membership and get a slot in SFMOMA’s podcast rotation.
Here at the Walker, Art on Call is going strong. Filmmakers in the Women with Vision festival will be using the system–which is a cellphone-based audio guide that can also be downloaded as a podcast on the Walker site–to share their musings during the 13th annual edition in March. And commentary from architects featured in our exhibition Some Assembly Required: Contemporary Prefabricated Houses are now available as mp3s, podcasts and via cellphone.
