(AP) The Cleveland Museum of Art is opening a high-tech gallery meant to electronically connect art fans and the museum's renowned collection.


It's called Gallery One and opens Monday.


Gallery One has a 40-foot multi-touch screen that displays images of more than 3,500 items from the collection.


It will allow visitors to match their faces to works of art or strike a pose from a Rodin sculpture.


Visitors can download tours or create their own on iPads. And a new iPad application will allow visitors to learn how works of art were created and where.


The museum is normally closed on Mondays but is opening for a series of special events marking the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
