Artist Marlena Myles.

Twin Cities digital artist Marlena Myles, a member of the Spirit Lake Dakota Tribe, has created an augmented reality art exhibition in partnership with the Arboretum, which begins in the Harrison Sculpture Garden. Visitors can use their mobile phones to download the Revelo AR app to view digital images and audio at stops along the walk to learn about Dakota culture and history.

Stop 1 is still being finalized. In 2023, four more stops will be added to complete the walk. It is recommended that visitors download the Revelo AR app from Pixel Farm in advance of visiting the Arboretum.

Check out the Oct. 23 ArtTalk with Marlena Myles for additional information about the exhibit. 

This exhibit is included with Arboretum membership or daily admission of $15 for ages 16 and older (free for ages 15 and younger). Indigenous peoples receive waived general daily admission to the Arboretum when making a reservation by calling 612-301-6775.
