Arts Everywhere in conjunction with the UNC General Alumni Association, the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership, and the Carolina ARVR Club invites you to look at the past and present of our downtown as we all envision our bright future in ARt Walk on Franklin: Then, Now and Always.
With the help from cutting edge augmented reality technology, you can stop along Franklin Street favorites to see what was and what is that makes our main stretch such an important part of the University’s identity, the student experience, and the community’s culture.
Use your phone to scan one-of-a-kind logo markers that will reveal photos of some of this community’s current and past favorite small businesses and take a look at the foundation of our business district’s success. Remember long-gone favorites, learn new information about connections between the old and new, and celebrate the tenacity of our current business owners who have survived the economic hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
