Brooklyn art gallery hopping can be challenging for the uninitiated who need the comfort of neat grids and clearly numbered streets to find their way around. My first advice, “Stay in Manhattan, we don’t want you here,” but if you refuse to listen then may I suggest the new “Art & Absinthe Guide to Brooklyn” smartphone app.
The result of a partnership between Pernod Absinthe Superieure, which touts itself as the “creator of art history’s most inspirational spirit,” and the WAGMAG monthly Brooklyn art guide, the resulting smartphone app is a useful tool that helps you locate galleries, know what’s on display, check-in with Foursquare, post/share info and find nearby bars and liquor stores (that sell absinthe, naturally).
The app is attractive and easy to use. My only complaint is that there are occasionally a few too many screens between you and the information you need, but considering it’s a useful AND FREE app, I’m willing to put up with that. There are also a few galleries missing but considering how many new spaces are popping up that may be a challenge for quite a while for this app.
