The Vancouver Mural Festival (VMF) Winter Arts has come up with a creative way to safely explore the city and keep the festival very much interactive.
This year, public spaces all across the city will be made into an interactive open air gallery featuring Augmented Reality (AR) art.
The VMF is partnering with the Downtown Vancouver BIA to keep the spirit of the annual event alive by integrating digital technology. It will be an “open-air” experience, with augmented reality artwork that can be seen through your phone.
The AR art will be all done by local and international artists from Vienna, Tokyo, Ho Chi Minh, Dallas, as well as 10 local artists from Vancouver, Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil Waututh.
We’re blurring the line between the virtual and real world with #VMFWinterArts! Feb 12-28, public space across #Vancouver will be transformed into an interactive, open-air gallery featuring #AugmentedReality (AR) art.
