Nanaimo Art? There's an App for that!

Nanaimo Art Explorer App

Bundle up this fall and take a tour of Nanaimo’s public art pieces but be sure to keep your mobile device handy.  The City of Nanaimo has recently launched the ‘Nanaimo Art Explorer App’; https://m.nanaimo.ca/art/ . Using your smart phone you can now enjoy a guided tour our local public art collection.

Once launched, the application will ask to use your device’s GPS to find your location.  Simply swipe through the images of the art pieces until you find one you’re interested in and tap on ‘learn more’ to display a description of the art and information about the artist. You can also use the ‘search’ function to find pieces by artist, art type, material or keyword. You can also click on ‘map’ to search instalments that are further away from you.

For those who would rather take a tour from the comfort of your home office, this information is also available using the existing online public art inventory at www.nanaimo.ca . Nanaimo’s Community Plan for Public Art is also available for viewing online, the goal is to encourage and support the presence of public art for Nanaimo residents and visitors. It is one of the pillars of the City’s commitment to the promotion and celebration of local cultural talent.

For more information about Parks, Recreation and Culture please visit the website, or call 250 756 5200.
