Tourists and locals need a more efficient way to locate murals and other art installations in their neighborhoods. Currently, the way many people explore their neighborhoods or neighborhoods that they are visiting is by word of mouth, or by inspiration from social media platforms like Instagram, Pinterest, or Facebook. These methods can be somewhat limited as popular apps don’t always have streamlined search features with filtering, precise geotagging for location, or the ability to efficiently use without a large and curated network to pull from.
What if there was some way to crowdsource information about tourist hot spots and local points of interest for any major city or travel destination? Could a solution that consolidated this information into a social media platform help drive tourism, increase outdoor activity in times where indoor activity is limited due to covid-19 closures, and generate interest in local musicians, artists, and muralists?
