Coming to the Museum of Outdoor Arts- MOA
(indoor galleries) January 11th through April 28th, Natura Obscura is an immersive arts experience that is like stepping into your favorite painting but where you can hear, smell, touch, and explore everything around you. It is part art museum and part virtual and augmented reality experience.
Natura Obscura is a self-guided exploration through a surrealist, dreamlike, forest that combines art, sculpture and the latest in virtual, augmented and digital technologies. Experience the wonder of a new form of art as you wander among the trees and fantastical woodland creatures. Who knows? You might even find a yeti along the way.
The installation encompasses about 5,000 sq. ft. of MOA’s indoor gallery space and is created by 30 local artists, craftsmen and creatives. Natura Obscura is a highly collaborative project brought to you by the beguilingly creative minds at MOA, Prismajic and MOA’s Design and Build education program.
Natura Obscura features installations by local artists Chris Bagley, Nicole Banowetz, Tiffany Matheson, Travis Powell, Scott Soffa and Ian Wagner. In addition, Grammy award-winning recording engineer, Mickey Houlihan, along with MOA, produced a custom cloud chamber environment in MOA’s Sound Gallery as part of the immersive experience.
The exhibition will be open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets will be honored until one hour before the closing time to provide enough time to experience the installation.
Tickets range in price from $10 to $20 based on day of the week and time of purchase. Tickets will go on sale on Saturday, Nov. 24. To purchase online tickets, please visit http://naturaobscura.org/
