These augmented reality sculptures honor the Indigenous peoples of North America and are intended to contribute to a cross-border cultural dialogue through the shared iconography of petroglyphs and hummingbirds. Located outside the three entrances to the Museum, the sculptures coincide with the commemoration of Native American Heritage Month.
Users can experience the artwork by scanning a QR code that will transport them to an interface that allows them to view the augmented reality sculpture directly through their smartphone.
