Brief Description

This year’s WildWalls will highlight current research from the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem including but not limited to: raptors, migration, water quality, glaciers, wildfire, bats, pollinators and wildflowers. Each of these topics will have its own wheat paste mural with images supplied by local artists that highlight the research topic. Images are paired with short, educational, augmented reality features directed by the scientists and designed by AR developers. In addition to responding to this topic, the muralist will be asked to include visual references to the other scientific briefs included in WildWalls so that each augmented reality feature can be repeated in the permanent mural. The lead muralist will also be asked to collaborate with participating artists on the final design and lead the painting crew which may include artists with various levels of mural painting experience.Local artists are invited to apply.
