International 3D/AR Chalk artist Anthony Cappetto led an Art for After Hours team (Shawn McCann, Wendy Stum) in the first public exhibition of 3D 4D chalk art and augmented reality (AR) blended together anywhere in the world at the Sarasota Chalk Festival in Sarasota, FL. The 3D 4D/AR chalk artwork, 'Visions of Cambodia' measured 30 by 40 feet in size and took the team approximately 150 hours to create onsite and several weeks of coordination for the successful combination of the 3D chalk design and the 4D (AR) effects. Special thanks to our friends at Daqri for the 4D (AR) assistance, making our concept work so well.
