Jackson Hole Public Art and local artists have been busy at work this spring, printing large-scale artworks and prepping sites for this year’s mural event — WILD WALLS — which opens this week and runs through early September. Nine temporary murals have been wheatpasted at locations around the Town of Jackson, each with a new twist — Augmented Reality (AR) features that transform the static image into a live story.
The temporary murals by local artists (listed below) are joined by a new, permanent mural by Laramie, WY artist Dan Toro sponsored by and located at Snake River Brewing. They all highlight the beauty and tell the story of the scenic and wild Snake River, Teton glaciers, and watersheds unique to the Jackson Hole area. By siting artworks in iconic public settings, Wild Walls aims to reach broad audiences with conservation messages through public art.
New this year, Wild Walls combines murals with AR features that promote a greater understanding and awareness about local water quality issues. Protect Our Water JH provided educational content and proactive solutions that demonstrate how individuals can help to preserve and protect local water quality. The message is clear : The Time is Now to Protect our Waters.
Viewers are prompted to download the HOVERLAY app onto their smartphone or device, find the @JHPublicArt channel, and look through the device to watch each mural come to life. Ouree Lee and Ryan Dee, with additional support from KGB Productions, developed the AR features and content in collaboration with Protect our Waters JH and the artists. A map of all mural sites can be found online and in a printed brochure that will be distributed throughout Town. The printed piece also includes tips for a self-guided mural “scavenger hunt” with clues that can be answered by watching each AR animation; answers can be found at www.jhpublicart.org/wildwalls
