The Divining Rod Experience

Coming up next: Saturday, April 21
12:30 pm to 3:00 pm

The electronic version of the “Divining Rod” will guide visitors to discover artworks in the museum based on their responses to other objects. As you move through the museum, the device senses your location, and a colored light glows in relation to colored labels on the walls. Scan the label, and like or dislike the artwork by pressing plus or minus buttons on the rod. Based on this feedback, the rod will lead you to another artwork it thinks you’ll appreciate—follow its colored lights through the corridors like points on a compass. Mia visitors can check out a rod at the Divining Rod kiosk on the third floor (gallery G310). Learn more here.
