In its continuous support for the art, Samsung partners with Yuchengco Museum in promoting art to the millennials. In the age of high-resolution touch screen mobile devices art is getting less appreciated. Museums and art galleries are only visited if it’s the teacher requires them to.
Masterpieces from our Juan Luna, Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo, Carlos “Botong” Francisco, Ang Kiukok, Vicente Manansala, and Fernando Amorsolo are displayed at the Yuchengco Museum at RCBC Plaza, Makati. To learn more about the artist and the art, Samsung introduced an app called “FACETS”.
With FACETS installed on your device. Just launch the app, point the camera at the piece of art. The augmented reality app will show green dots on the screen, when you touch it, it displays information about the art and the artist.
It’s nice because you don’t have to ask someone or pretend you know it. It makes you appreciate the art more.
Aside from the new app, Samsung also have seven large Curved UHDTV lined up which displays works of Juan Luna and Carlos “Botong’ Francisco. The arts are displayed in full HD and live colors. You’ll be able to see even the smallest details or brush stokes.
The partnership of Samsung and Yuchengco Museum is expected to attract more people, especially the young ones.
Also at the Yuchengco Museum is Samsung Digital Gallery showcasing Relative Realities with artworks from 6 artists including printmaker Ambie Abaño, painter Ernest Concepcion, painter Jason Montinola, sculptor Leeroy New, visual artist Arturo Sanchez, Jr., and multimedia and performance artist Josephine Turalba.
The Relative Realities: Creating New Dimensions of Art through Technology, at the Samsung Digital Gallery runs from August 7 to September 8, 2014 only. Be
