About this Event
This installment of Lowe Connects consists of a presentation and celebration of the work done by students in the art history course ARH 347 (Spring 2020) on a virtual art exhibition experienced in Augmented Reality through the Magic Leap headsets. With objects in the Lowe’s Antiquities Gallery as the starting point, the course participants devised the content and theme of the exhibition and designed the application themselves. The students will present demos of their Augmented Reality applications, discuss the creative process involved and learning outcomes derived from the project, and reflect on the potential for the use of Extended Reality (XR) technologies for the discipline of art history, cultural institutions, and beyond.
Karen Mathews, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Art History
