Buddhist Art in Asia was originally designed as a handheld computer tour of the Asian Art Galleries. It was developed by the Education Department and the Department of Asian Art at the Johnson Art Museum in collaboration with the Human Computer Interaction Group at Cornell University and Spotlight Mobile, Inc.
We would like to thank our partners for the web site: The Cornell Human Computer Group; Spotlight Mobile; The Institute of Museum and Library Services; and the NY State Council on the Arts.
Buddhist Art in Asia is also available as a cell phone tour! Call 607-300-3552 (standard rates apply).
