Authors:Liz Neely, Elory Rozner
Publication:MW2015: Museums and the Web 2015

Museum3D at the Art Institute of Chicago put in place a year of experimentation in innovative approaches to audience engagement with the museum’s renowned encyclopedic collection using three-dimensional technologies. Programs targeted different audiences (family, adult, teen, tween, and educator) and varied in design (duration, mode, and size). This paper shares the museum's process and outcomes, as well as helpful guidelines for museums and educators to use 3D technologies with museum collections. Coauthors Liz Neely and Elory Rozner served as the Museum3D project director and the evaluator, respectively.
