People will soon be able to have virtual tours of public art around Michigan thanks to a new app.

The Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs is offering the Michigan Amazing Art Tour app.

The app allows users to search categories of art including murals, sculpture and architecture.

From there, it will lead them to a tour of those pieces either within a small radius of their location or spanning throughout the entire state.

The council partnered with curators across the state to compile the tours.

Other features of the mobile app include the ability to bookmark and "like" tours on Facebook.
