Virtual Gallery Guide

Each exhibition has two or three pathways: (1) a rich image gallery, (2) an audio-only overview, (3) short annotated descriptions of select artifacts. 

The Mobile Gallery Guide was produced in collaboration with Culture Connect, a media partner and producer of the in-gallery experience for Voting Matters.
