To enrich your art experience, a self-guided audio tour has been created.
QR codes have been placed next to art tour pieces so that visitors may learn about select pieces of art via their own smart phone. For faster access to audio files, visitors may want to log into the GCC wireless network.
Listening wands are available at the circulation desk at the west end of the Library Media Center (where most of the collection is located). The wands allow users to view the collection at their own pace and in any sequence. To hear the entire tour, allow 90 minutes. Some sculptures are located outside the library on the grounds of the GCC campus.
