SEATTLE, June 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Art Galleries for Mobile is an exciting new platform designed to help museums, galleries and arts organizations showcase high-quality content on the iPad.

The popularity of tablets make them an ideal interface through which to introduce a new generation of connoisseurs to the world of art.
