Artpark Sonic Trails | Kids Out and About Buffalo

Artpark Sonic Trails

*The event has already taken place on this date: Tue, 08/31/2021
For many of us, this last year's been like pushing a rock up a hill. That's why Artpark is pleased to present a summer-long experience that's more like a walk in the park ... literally! Throughout the summer at Artpark, your key to expansive horizons, endless epiphanies and sensory delights will be right in your pocket: an immersive, choose-your-own-adventure to be experienced alone or with loved ones. Artpark's Sonic Trails are site reactive audio experiences presented in a mobile app. With a hyper-local and global perspective we have brought together some of the most influential BIPOC voices in music to cultivate aural experiences exploring the unique geological and historic features of Artpark.
