The annual conference brings together curators, librarians, scholars and museum directors and their peers in technology — designers, developers and analysts — who are finding creative ways to blend tech and the arts. (For examples, see the projects from this January’s Art Bytes hackathon at the Walters Art Museum.)
One of the events kicking off the conference on April 1 is the “Underground Art Tour,” a walking (and driving) tour of the Bromo and Station North arts districts as well as a visit to the Harbor East studio of Adam Cook, a sculpture artist who is now using augmented reality technologies in his artwork. According to the Museums and the Web site, there’s no fee for this tour, although lunch, transportation and entrance fees to any galleries are on attendees.-30-
