A new augmented reality app commissioned by Google Fiber and developed by Code the Dream allows visitors to share something of themselves while experiencing the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera-inspired murals in downtown Durham.
The murals are located on the 100 block of East Chapel Hill Street, on the side of the Durham Convention Center. Download the app and get more information below.
About the Murals
The murals were installed in the fall by the North Carolina Museum of Art to celebrate the museum’s Mexican Modernism exhibit which includes pieces by Kahlo and Rivera. The murals, entitled “I Am My Own Muse” and “Juchari Ziranhua / Nuestros Raices/ Our Roots” are the works of artists Cecilia Lueza and Cornelio Campos, respectively. Several groups helped with the completion of the murals, including students from the NCMA’s Teen Art Council, El Pueblo, and El Centro Hispano.
