Art at GVSU

"Art at GVSU" is a free mobile application for the iPhone and Android devices that provides access to the more than 11,000 pieces of art in the university’s collection. 

"Art at GVSU" features:

  • tours with Google Maps implementation 
  • complete artwork lists of every GVSU building
  • lookup tools to find additional information on your favorite artwork
  • full social media integration

New features and enhancements are currently under development, including QR scanning and tablet optimization.

The app was built by the GVSU Mobile Applications Service Lab in the School of Computing and Informations Systems by utilizing the Art Gallery's online collection database (Collective Access).

This app's framework will eventually be made available open source for other institutions using Collective Access. For more information, please contact Nathan Kemler at
