Third Friday Celebration for Mariposa AR: New Augmented Reality App for Durham’s Frida Kahlo Murals
Friday, February 21, 2020
A new augmented reality app called Mariposa AR – commissioned by Google Fiber and developed by Code the Dream – allows visitors to interact with two murals in downtown Durham inspired by artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Our partners from Code the Dream and North Carolina Museum of Art will be on site to help spectators bring the murals to life and share their own stories on the new app. Join us at the American Underground afterwards for refreshments and for more hands-on mural app exploration.
