Northern Reflections Window Exhibition

December 1, 2017 @ 10:00 am - December 31, 2017 @ 5:00 pm MST

From December 1st to 31st, 2017 Calgarians will have the unique opportunity to participate in and engage with an immersive art experience unlike any other. In partnership with the Downtown Calgary, Buds of Buds will be debuting the first ever urban art gallery through a series of painted windows, called the Northern Reflections Window Exhibition that will incorporate Augmented Reality (AR) technology. The series will be painted by a variety of local artists and will stretch throughout Calgary’s downtown core, showcasing many participating local businesses and turning the city streets into a grand urban art-walk.

With the use of a smartphone and a simple app, the exhibition combines AR and art to allow viewers to interact and engage with each art piece, while also voting for their favourite window. The AR application, Augle, will be available for download in the App Store and Google Play on November 1, 2017.

Click here to view the making of the flagship window, see the Augle app in action, and get a sneak peek of what’s to come!
