AUGMENTED REALITY AT THE ART GALLERY

The UK’s first Augmented Reality (AR) art and street art gallery is to open in the heart of the creative quarter in Birmingham, UK.

Launching in Stirchley, the new epicentre of the independent arts scene in the UK’s second city, The Thomas Crown Gallery will officially open its doors on February 6th.

Birmingham-born international art dealer, Stephen Howes of Thomas Crown Art, noted. “When truly cutting-edge technologies, including augmented reality, and art collide, ground-breaking possibilities emerge.”

The art-tech gallery is an important and innovative addition to Britain’s art scene.

Howes concluded, “Tech is democratising art. The gallery, which is a statement against the elite, symbolises this like nowhere else in the UK.”
