Selected to exhibit in FUTURE, the next installment of Made Here MN, Director of VR, Hattie Ball & I will facilitate Community Garden. A Participatory Painting and Augmented Reality Mural in downtown Minneapolis. Along with 40 Artists exhibiting in urban storefronts along Hennepin Avenue, Grow Together will be exhibited in Window #117, off 8th Street.
The first Family Day at Better World Museum was dedicated to painting the Community Garden Mural. iPads were available for people to draw or tell audio stories. The digital content was used to create Augmented Reality Stories. Using a free app called Zappar, the public is able to scan the zapcode and watch videos, read science facts, or listen to stories.

Virtual Reality Garden
So many amazing people visited and painted on the mural. There was a young women's science competition in the building the day of Family Day. One girl said she was a "specialist in nitrates" - I loved that! She emailed me and I asked her to be Director of Science and Innovations. She has been creating some research cards. Becca is also part of a team creating an Edible Indoor Garden Lab at Better World Museum to be implemented in urban schools in the future..
