City Unseen App will Feature the Lost Parramore Mural
Recent renovations to the Interstruct Inc. Parramore office building resulted in the obstruction of a mural of a local activist, but it will soon see new life via a local Augmented Reality (AR) app called City Unseen. The piece, called Love Seeks Unity, was commissioned by local architect Ryan Young and created by local artist Maureen Huda and her team. The mural depicted Orlando activist Jennifer Desire in vibrant hues of blue, turquise, red, and gold. Young has now partnered with the team at Snap! Orlando to make use of their AR public art project, City Unseen, to help the work live on. Read how it works here.
