Public Art in the Digital Age: A Curated Conversation on Augmented Reality

Join Hoverlay and the Greenway Conservancy for a curated conversation on public art in the digital age. Greenway Conservancy Director and Curator of Public Art, Lucas Cowan, will moderate a lively conversation engaging perspectives of contemporary art from artists, software developers, and curators. The panel will explore how increased access to technology and the borderless possibilities of Augmented Reality enable the scope of public art to exist in all spaces, from public parks to our living rooms. How has an increase in technology, from the growth of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, intersected and expanded public art opportunities, especially in a pre/post COVID-19 world?
