“Installation of Living Time Line: Paul Robeson on Saturday May 30, 2015 on a U St. alleyway in D.C. Cory L Stowers received a commission from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities to create this mural, which depicts the life of Paul Robeson. The mural contains an image recognition technology which triggers access to rich content, and is the first use of this technology for an outdoor mural.”

Very cool!
