“Experience beautiful, interactive pieces of art created by St. Jude patients from all over the world”
Timed to this week’s St. Jude marathon, we are announcing a special collaboration between St. Jude and CodeCrew as one of our final celebrations of A New Century of Soul.
“One of those special things that happens at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is we work with our patients through the medium of art to tell their stories and bring that to life so we have all this amazing creativity, and I’m so excited through the Memphis Brand and the Bicentennial from Memphis that we’re showcasing this, in a whole new way.”
–Emily Callahan, Chief Marketing & Experience Officer, ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
Our partner CodeCrew with the innovation team at OSX built this technology whereby you see a physical piece of art and use your phone to experience that art ‘coming to life’ in surprising and delightful ways.
Imagine looking at a beautiful backdrop, downloading our app, and experiencing the joy of a hummingbird coming to life and interacting with the scene the way the artist wanted you to experience that scene.
- First step is to take your phone over your camera scan the QR code, and it will direct you to download the app. You can also go to this [link] or search in your app store forMemphis 200 App.
- Once you open the app, then the artwork comes to light. Go around town and see these beautiful pieces of art created by St. Jude patients from all over the world and learn a little bit more about their story and also how important it is to have a supportive Memphis community that makes the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital possible.
We’re here to blend art, stories, and technology together and unique and different ways, download the Memphis 200 App today and become a part of a new century soul.
