Developed by Boulevard, the BLVRD Featuresapp for iOS brings users engrossing art and culture stories from around the world and throughout the ages, all in augmented reality (AR). Users place iconic paintings, prints, drawings, and more in their space. Then they get close to these works and discover details about art, history, innovation, design, and the creative process that they never would have considered—including fascinating connections between the past and the contemporary world. The latest feature dives into a Surrealist still-life painting by Salvador Dali from Wadsworth Atheneum that will have users questioning what’s real and what’s not. BLVRD Features will continue to deliver a steady stream of single episodes, highlighting major works from arts institutions around the world. Cost: Free
