Blue Star Contemporary’s Red Dot art sale app lets you see, buy art virtually

Blue Star Red Dot, the biggest art sale and fundraiser each year for Blue Star Contemporary, is going high-tech with an augmented reality app being built specifically for the event. It’s just one of the ways that art lovers can see the work and support the exhibition space.

Stoke, a San Antonio-based augmented reality development studio, is creating the free app, which will go live on Wednesday and can be used through Oct. 4. It’s called Blue Star Red Dot and is available for iOS and Android.

“We think it is going to revolutionize the way that people share and display art and how we support art, especially in a changing world like we’re experiencing today,” said Patrick Atwater, founder and CEO of Stoke, during a media preview of the app.
