The Art of the App and the Best Apps for Art, Music, Fashion, Everything

Mobile and web apps have swept the world.  Apps are in the middle of how we travel, where we sleep, what we eat, how we experience art, photography, and books. But which apps do we really use?

Are we exposed to more art, or better art, or does greater access breed greater uniformity?  This program will explore the art of app design, as well as apps that help us design, and enjoy all of human creativity.

Join us to meet the leading designers and thinkers behind the app revolution, discuss the apps we use, and learn what we can expect in the future with voice activation, bots, augmented and virtual reality.
