Augmented reality can transform how we experience and learn about art history. When designed with thought and intention, it can foster rich and meaningful engagements with art, improve the visitor experience, and increase knowledge retention.

In this session, attendees will learn about the opportunities and challenges of designing AR experiences for museums. Lisa Lokshina will share valuable UX insights gathered while designing location-based AR experiences for world-renowned art institutions and discuss what it means to design active visitor engagements using immersive technology.

The session will showcase its findings through a series of compelling case studies, including “A Victorious Athlete in Augmented Reality,” a location-based AR app that reveals the long-lost history of one of the Getty Villa’s most-prized statues from antiquity. Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the potential of AR, practical knowledge of crafting immersive location-based experiences, and strategies for designing educational and compelling visitor engagements.


UXRS strives to create a community where people can make meaningful connections with others in the UX field. Come for the presentation, stay for the UX networking.

We'll end the night with our usual "happy hour" open forum of questions and answers.

About the organizer

UX Research and Strategy is a registered 501c3 organization, and was founded by three former co-workers who saw a gap in the user experience meetup market. Based on community feedback, we formed a group that is dedicated to teaching topics in UX research and strategy.

Our goal is to make these topics both approachable and actionable by ensuring our attendees come away with concrete examples of how to confidently implement user experience research and strategy methods in their day-to-day projects and work.
