An Entire Calgary Neighboured Has Been Taken Over By Awe-Inspiring Interactive Art & Music
If you are dying to get out of the house and consume a little culture in your city, there is an Inglewood art walk taking place that fuses together art, music, and interactive experiences for you to enjoy.
The murals have been paired with music produced by local and international musicians, and an interactive experience when users download the free Augle App onto their smartphone.
"To use, Calgarians can simply activate the AR camera in the app, point their phone at the image and see augmented reality artwork in action," it continues.
Basically, you fuze together an art exhibition with a video game and a concert on a massive, neighbourhood-wide scale.
You can find the installations at the following local businesses:
- Blue Store
- Circa Vintage Art Class
- ESPY Experience
- Gorilla Whale
- Ironwood Stage & Grill
- Purr Clothing
- Rosso Coffee Roasters
- Spolumbos Fine Foods & Deli
- Twitchin Threadz
The event is meant to "celebrate the power of music, art and business."
In a time where you might feel especially removed from your community, local businesses and local creatives, this is the perfect opportunity to revisit those passions in a totally unique way.
Just download the app and get ready to treat your senses.
