The Polygon Outside

The Polygon Gallery is pleased to present The Polygon Outside, a new digital program that extends the reach of art experiences beyond the physical gallery through commissioned projects featured on a downloadable app. The projects animate sites along the North Shore’s waterfront and Spirit Trail locations, using photographs, videos, texts and audio material.

The Polygon App is free to download  from the Apple Store and Google Play. From within the app, select ‘The Polygon Outside’ from the menu.
