Jackson Hole Public Art has selected 10 artists to participate in this year’s WildWalls, an annual event during which local artists transform Jackson’s blank exterior walls into an open-air gallery from June through September. Continuing the tradition of bringing the art and science communities together, this year’s artists will be responding to scientific data and developments from within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
WildWalls 2021 will combine each mural with augmented reality features that promote a greater understanding and awareness of the region’s ecosystem through cutting edge scientific research. Silver Star is sponsoring the WildWalls augmented reality features that will be hosted on the Hoverlay app, available on all smartphones.
Jackson Hole Public Art is working with the selected artists and eco-partners including The Nature Conservancy, Grand Teton National Park Foundation, Teton Conservation District, Protect Our Water JH, and Trout Unlimited, to generate this educational content to make each mural come alive.
