Augmented Reality and Art

The CanalConvergence augmented reality channel not only enhances the art of Canal Convergence, it also expands it. While seven of the temporary public artworks have AR components, including artist talks from their creators and other features, two of the artworks exist entirely in augmented reality. Additionally, we have added AR components to 10 of the artworks from the Scottsdale Public Art Permanent Collection throughout Old Town Scottsdale. The artworks listed below have AR features. Click the link to each for more information about the artworks, including their locations.

Please be aware of your surroundings while using the app.
