St. Jude & CodeCrew Make Memphis History

“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.
