How to use Second Canvas

Discover how you can use Second Canvas to make your collection better known and reach new audiences:

Outside the museum

  • Visualize super high resolution images in an app, website, digital publication…
  • Discover, find out about, study, prepare a visit, remember an experience…
  • Use this material in class to get your students interested in art through stories and details of the artwork.
  • Reach new faraway audiences

In the museum

  • Offer an “augmented” visit that complements the physical experience
  • Interact with the visitor’s own devices or via the screens and kiosks installed for that purpose
  • Improve interpretation and knowledge of the artwork that is visited
  • Increase satisfaction and engagement rate

Alternative experiences

  • Complete your exhibition with digital versions of artworks that cannot travel
  • Offer digital alternatives while your artwork is absent
  • Make your collection reachable by audiences anywhere in the world, through digital exhibitions of your own or collective ones together with digital versions of works of art from other museums, with no transport costs, no insurance costs, etc.

What our clients say about Second Canvas:

Gabriele FinaldiImage
Visitors to the gallery can spend a minute, even just half a minute, looking at a picture. With the app you can explore every centimetre of the work of art in your own time on your iPad, leading to a deeper understanding of how it was created and every detail the artist included.
Gabriele Finaldi
Former Deputy Director at Museo del Prado (currently Director of the National Gallery in London)
For the Telefónica Foundation, Second Canvas is a tool of great value. First, it is totally in line with our philosophy of joining art and technology to spread culture, and it contributes to positioning us within this context. And additionally, apart from being an ideal means for conserving our collection, it permits us to approach art in an innovative way-in keeping with the XXI Century- and so open doors to other interpretations that are the result of this digital perspective.
