WELCOME TO OUR MIXED WORLD!
A Mixed Reality Company, Bringing Light to Untold Stories of History & Culture Through Art & Technology:
Historical Preservation, Digital Recreation!
Our mission is to bring light to untold stories of history through art and technology. Through this process, MXD WRLD aims to recognize systemic issues, both past and present, providing engaging and educational experiences and programs for local and global communities.
Our vision is to create world class physical and mixed reality experiences that connect individuals to culturally impactful art while breaking down the socioeconomic barriers of arts education.
MXD WRLD fosters an avenue for direct positive impact on national and international youth, connecting communities with artists to celebrate their stories. We strive to create fun, accessible, and educational experiences.
WHAT WE DO
Due to the temporary nature of NYC's plywood murals and public artworks, MXD WRLD's Corona Art Gallery aims to physically and digitally preserve these pieces which may have otherwise been destroyed. Through this process, these historic pieces will live on indefinitely inside the digital world, creating a virtual experience for visitors, from casual to educational, that will exist for generations to come.
In addition to a cutting edge 3D Virtual Experience, MXD WRLD is dedicated to expanding these once-temporary murals' lives through Pop-Ups and Augmented Reality Art Walks. Pop-Ups will once again bring these important pieces of history to the masses, continuing to spread the artworks' demand for progress. Augmented Reality Art Walks will enable visitors to see the artworks in the exact space where they once stood, allowing visitors for generations to experience the social revolution of 2020.
MXD WRLD will provide a forum for education on this historic moment, the issues NYC artists brought to light, and art’s fundamental role in many communities’ healing & revival. Like the Corona Art Gallery itself, this educational forum will exist for generations to come, making the Corona Art Gallery a crucial historical lens through which to bear witness to 2020.
MXD WRLD will hold Artist Talks with schools throughout the globe. These talks will explore concepts such as Art & Personal Healing, Art & Community Revival, Art & Therapy, Art & Business, and many more.
