Detroit teams up with art startup to track city's murals, street art
Love Detroit's ever-growing and evolving murals but aren't always sure where you saw what or how to track them? A new app will help with that.
On Wednesday, Detroit's office of Arts, Culture and Entrepreneurship announced a new partnership with art technology company CANVS to identify all of the art on the city's walls and eventually create a digital map on the city's website. An app, Canvs Interactive Street Art, also will allow residents, tourists and other "mural hunters" to use their smartphones to identify specific murals and the artist.
