Harlem Renaissance: On the Inside Opening Reception
Harlem Renaissance: On the Inside | A 2D, 3D and Virtual Reality exhibit.
The 2D exhibit introduces you to the artists, writers, and musicians who contributed to the movement. Dance in the 3D experience with patrons of the Savoy Ballroom. Ocular glasses provide a virtual reality ride through Harlem in a car and a view of the Savoy Ballroom from the inside. The goal of the project is to combine digital humanities and technology innovation to educate, inform and excite visitors. The exhibition is based on “The Virtual Harlem Project,” an established digital humanities project by Bryan Carter, an Associate Professor of Africana Studies at the University of Arizona, who specializes in African American literature of the 20th Century, with a primary focus on the Harlem Renaissance and digital culture.
