This summer we've launched three new tours on our app: Reconfiguring and Recontextualizing Materials, Perspectives and Perceptions, and Generating Art Through Science, Technology, and Engineering. Each tour responds to a different theme reflected in Landmarks' collection and offers new ways to consider and engage with artists like Mark di Suvero, Simone Leigh, Ben Rubin, James Turrell, Ursula Von Rydingsvard, and others.
