ARt Walk on Franklin is a cutting-edge augmented reality experience to highlight local art and generate more foot traffic for downtown businesses. All you have to do is find an Art Walk on Franklin poster on a business window in downtown Chapel Hill and use your phone to scan the black and white logo to reveal a hidden piece of art!
This interactive digital art exhibit in downtown Chapel Hill is live from December 12th until January 1st.
So how does it work?
1. Find an Art Walk on Franklin poster (there are posters posted on the windows of 10 businesses.)
2. Use your phone camera to scan the small QR code on the poster or manually go to artonfranklin.com in your browser
3. Point your phone at the black and white logo marker on the center of the poster to reveal the hidden piece of art
4. Touch, swipe, or pinch to rotate, flip, or zoom in on the art on your phone!
Featured artists in this exhibit include Kevin Duong, Peri Law, Nique Lomax, Jason Lord, and AhDream Smith.
