Rice Gallery iPad App

Rice Gallery is the only University art museum in the United States focusing on site-specific installation art. Each artist commissioned transforms the gallery into a single work of art that visitors can enter and explore.

Rice University Art Gallery honors the Centennial and the University’s founding idea of “no upper limit to its educational endeavor” by creating Rice University’s first downloadable app for the iPad.
