POWJH partnered with Jackson Hole Public Art for an outreach and education project during the summer called WILD WALLS – a series of murals around town focusing on local water quality issues. The cornerstone of the project is a permanent mural at the Snake River Brewery. Also, there were nine temporary murals throughout downtown Jackson on display from late June through September and three murals at Snake River access locations.


The WILD WALLS murals are paired with Augmented Reality (AR) animated features activated via a smartphone app that makes them come to life! The AR promotes a greater understanding of the water quality issues facing our community and offers proactive conservationand call-to-action solutions. The AR animations received 5,200 views during the duration of the display.
