Ashland, Oregon – Art Authority LLC, developers of the award-winning Art Authority virtual museum apps, today announced that their apps for iPad and iPhone now include access to the 1000Museums gift shop, where art lovers can purchase museum-approved reproductions of major works they view through the apps. Art Authority LLC acquired pioneering print-on-demand site 1000Museum last year.
The Art Authority apps, two-time Apple Rewind award winners, include access to over 100,000 classic artworks from over 1500 artists. Version 4.11 of the apps, available as free upgrades, integrates the company’s 1000Museum print line into the Art Authority virtual museum in multiple ways. Users can enter and browse the full 1000Museums gift shop directly from the museum, view “shows” of museum works that can be purchased as reproductions, or simply tap on a button to purchase prints of a particular work they are viewing within the museum.
1000Museums has been providing museum-approved archival reproductions of works from hundreds of museums around the world for over a decade. The brand has been selected to provide prints for major institutions such as the US Library of Congress, Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, and National Gallery in London. Reproductions are available in fives sizes, with custom framing options.
Version 4.11 of the Art Authority apps also includes new artists and works of art, as well as support for iOS 11 and Apple’s new iPhone X. Art Authority for iPad is $9.99 and Art Authority for iPhone is $4.99 (USD) through the App Store.
Art Authority LLC’s mission is to partner with internationally renowned art authorities, museums and artists to make the world’s art accessible to all through innovative software solutions and museum-quality reproductions. The company works with art museums and other cultural institutions to make high-end archival reproductions of artwork from their collections available to the general public, broadening awareness and accessibility while providing the institutions with a revenue stream at the same time. Much of the artwork can also be viewed through Art Authority’s award-winning line of apps. Art Authority is based in Ashland, Oregon. Copyright (C) 2017 Art Authority LLC. All Rights Reserved.
