During this hackathon event, technology and creative communities will work together to build programs and applications inspired by art or to address specific challenges faced by museums. This will be Baltimore’s first art museum hackathon.
This event will be at the Walters Art Museum from July 27–July 29.

On Friday evening, July 27, staff from Baltimore’s museum community will present specific challenges or ideas that they would like solved—from how to use technology to experience a collection to how to virtually access archives. Over the course of the weekend, technologists, innovators, scholars and artists will coalesce into teams in the Walters’ Sculpture Court to design and develop their solution. Participants will be able to visit the museum’s galleries for inspiration throughout the weekend.

On Sunday afternoon, July 29, leaders of the technology and innovation communities will judge which teams were the most successful. Thanks to the generosity of the Abell Foundation, $5,000 will be awarded in prizes

Judges: Sid Meier, Director of Creative Development at Firaxis Mario Armstrong – Digital Lifestyle Expert, CNN, NPR, WYPR Greg Cangialosi, Managing Director, Nucleus Ventures, LLC Sheri Parks, Aassociate Professor in American studies at the University of Maryland and a regular contributor to WYPR ‘Midday’ Murray Taylor, President, Digital Steamworks Jeannie Howe, Executive Director, Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance
