Art + Tech Synergy Series

Presented by S3 Technologies and Downtown Akron Partnership and ArtsNow at Online/Virtual Space

May 20 2021
Art + Tech Synergy Series

The relationship between art and technology is evolving quickly. We’ll explore how this relationship can positively impact our communities.

Join ArtsNow and co-hosts Downtown Akron Partnership and S3 Technologies for a conversation on the intersection of art, technology, and community development as part of our ArtsNow Presents series.

For this conversation we will come together with artists Alexandria Couch and Micah Kraus, Kelli Fetter (Downtown Akron Partnership), and Bill Myers (S3 Technologies) to discuss their project making art come to life through Augmented Reality in Downtown Akron. We’ll explore a greater conversation on how this type of work can create a socially engaging way to interact with art while encouraging community exploration and showing that art is truly for all people.

Alexandria Couch is a graduate of the Myers School of Art at the University of Akron, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting, drawing, and printmaking. The majority of her work
