HOUSTON LATINO ART: Immersive yourself into the expansive art scene with a swipe of a finger

HOUSTON, Texas -- From murals to paintings, Houston's expansive Latino art is being mapped through an interactive and portable digital board.

The interactive experience was developed by the University of Houstons Center for Mexican American and Latino/a Studies. It allows users to experience Latino art in seven communities, and other parts of Houston, like never before.

It was co-created by the center's director, Pamela Quiroz.

"The value of this is that it preserves the Houston Latino artist work," Quiroz said.

In April, the digital board was transformed into an immersive experience and was viewed at Houston Scottish Rite. Eventually, the goal is to expand Latino cARTographies access through multiple installations throughout the city of Houston and virtual access through an App.
