Imagine yourself at an art exhibition, standing in front of a painting. You hold up your smart phone, point the lens at the painting, and scan it. Within seconds, an overlay appears at the corner of your screen and a 30-second video gives you the "back story" about this work. You are then given the option to click through to a Web site that provides additional information. This is what the University of Arizona Augmented Reality project will allow attendees of the "Beauford Delaney and Paris: A Breathtaking Evolution" exhibition at Columbia University's Paris facility at Reid Hall to experience! Dr. Bryan Carter, Associate Professor of the University of Arizona's Department of Africana Studies, has selected six students to come to Paris for this project. For most of them, it will be their first trip abroad. Please donate to support their travel and lodging AND get acknowledgment of your gift for U. S. federal income tax purposes!
