Customer Problem

George Washington’s Mount Vernon is known for its historic mansion tour and was looking for a way to tell the broader story of the estate and its residents without altering the physical appearance of its iconic landscape.

ARtGlass Deployment

Mount Vernon in AR was an hour-long tour that included stories about the estate and the people who lived there. ARtGlass was able to fill in long-standing gaps in the narrative—such as telling the stories of enslaved people—by projecting greenscreens of costumed historical interpreters onto the landscape, allowing guests to see and hear from this previously voiceless group. Using highly detailed 3D models, we were also able to show the evolution of the mansion to guests standing directly in front of it, a feat that can only truly come to life by means of this technology.
