For those who did not get a chance to visit the Sackner Archive exhibition in the Main Library Gallery during the Fall 2020 semester, you’re in luck! The virtual tour of the exhibit is now ready to view.
The tour features 360° photos of the Main Library Gallery, which allow the viewer to move from area to area. The text panels and the cases containing the objects on display are clickable, meaning close-up views of the items are available along with narrative from the curators. Blog articles and videos relating to the works in the exhibit are also included, such as curator commentary and short recordings of a few of the pieces in motion. A clickable exhibition guide is located near the gallery’s virtual front doors, and also on the Main Library Gallery website.
An immersive reader option is readily available in each section of the virtual exhibit to read the detailed image descriptions for each piece on display. Videos with sound include closed captions.
For more information about this past exhibit, including a LibGuide and PDF of the exhibition guide, visit lib.uiowa.edu/gallery/exhibit/sackner.
Thank you to the University of Iowa Pentacrest Museums for partnering with the Main Library Gallery to make this virtual experience available.
