Please join us for the first ever Long Beach Augmented Reality (AR) Exhibition in Downtown Long Beach on Sunday, August 8 to Sunday, August 22. 

Over the past two months, over 20 artists and augmented reality developers have created Instagram AR experiences that imagine new ways of visualizing Long Beach's past, present, and future. 

Immerse yourself in the world of augmented reality right here in Downtown Long Beach. The Promenade and nearby streets will be filled with interactive AR experiences just for you, so bring your smartphone and get in on the fun! Enjoy live music and food and drinks from local restaurants. Vote on your favorite Instagram AR experiences and stay for a prize ceremony where $14,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the best AR experiences. 

The judging panel includes Rosanne Kang Jovanovski of Intertrend, Alan Pullman of Studio 111, Amy Stock of the Kennedy Grace Gallery, Lisa Mae Brunson of Wonder Women Tech, and Rob Kohout of Warner Bros. Studios.
