The advent of digital technology and smart phones has completely transformed cultural tourism by giving users access to a wealth of information previously unavailable. Cities throughout the country are showcasing their public art collections online and creating websites, maps, videos, podcasts, virtual guidebooks, and apps which are GPS based. In an era of tight budgets, this program will focus on the various approaches different cities are taking to make public art accessible through digital mapping.
