Enter Snapchat's VR art gallery to celebrate Black History Month
In celebration of Black History Month, Snapchat launched an immersive lens on Monday that lets users explore a virtual art gallery filled with the work of black millennial artists. The idea is that Snapchat users can enter the "gallery" wherever they are to see sharp and vibrant work that celebrates and reflects upon many themes, including being a young black artist in America.
The featured artists include Gianni Lee, Bianca Pastel, Jessica Spence, Jameel Mohammed, and Paracosm, with music from Ivy Sole. The Snapchat black employee group, SnapNoir, "spearheaded" the initiative "to honor the work being done by talented artists today and celebrate the black history of now." The lens and gallery experience will be available throughout February. Read more...More about Art, Snapchat, Social Good, Black History Month, and Tech
