Flower STEM: the mXRket
Inspired by ARTECHOUSE DC and creatives in STEM, members of Flower STEM use technology to transform the Cafritz Foundation Theatre into a lively night market. Walk through individual booths for a personal experience, gaze at projections of nighttime views and even order a custom plate of virtual food through virtual reality!
This event is part of NextNOW Fest. The Clarice’s NextNOW Fest is an inspiring arts experience that celebrates imagination, creativity and community. By amplifying the voices of intriguing, inventive artists from around campus and our community, NextNOW Fest creates a forward-looking microcosm where art transforms our future and (re)connects us all.
NextNOW Fest is a signature event in University of Maryland's new Arts for All initiative, which leverages the combined power of the arts, technology and social justice to address the grand challenges of our time. In addition to our traditional student, academic and touring arts lineup at The Clarice on Sep 17 and 18, we’re thrilled to forge new partnerships with more student-led groups, academic departments and community organizations to expand the festival to seven days at sites throughout campus and into College Park!
