Joelle, the Museum’s Network Administrator, tests cellular signal from our rooftop.
When the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art opens in March 2007, we will be delivering the Center’s audio guide content via cell phone. Problem is, we don’t get cell service within our building’s very thick walls. By installing several antennas on the roof, we can grab existing outdoor cellular signal and bring it directly into the galleries.
Luckily we get a strong enough signal up here to funnel it inside, so there will be no dropped calls as our visitors listen to The Dinner Party audio tour.
Shelley Bernstein is the former Vice Director of Digital Engagement & Technology at the Brooklyn Museum where she spearheaded digital projects with public participation at their center. In the most recent example—ASK Brooklyn Museum—visitors ask questions using their mobile devices and experts answer in real time. She organized three award-winning projects—Click! A Crowd-Curated Exhibition, Split Second: Indian Paintings, GO: a community-curated open studio project—which enabled the public to participate in the exhibition process.
Shelley was named one of the 40 Under 40 in Crain's New York Business and her work on the Museum's digital strategy has been featured in the New York Times.
In 2016, Shelley joined the staff at the Barnes Foundation as the Deputy Director of Digital Initiatives and Chief Experience Officer.
