Abstract

Augmented Reality (AR) is a growing field, with great potential purposes in many different environments including public museums and galleries. This paper introduces the use of AR in a public museum that is designed to bridge museum visitors, especially preschoolers to art pieces installed in a public museum. In collaboration with the UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum, we created an Augmented Reality experience called the OTC (Object To Camera) to showcase one’s artwork through an augmented medium that shows the behind scenes of the art pieces. The experience was intended to have a more physical approach, to distinguish itself from other augmented reality experiences the user may have come into contact with. An observation was conducted as a field study with preschoolers at a community event held at the UNLV Marjorie Barrick Museum and showed that interactive AR has potential applications in the museum to enhance the learning process.
