The Walters Art Museum | Bringing Photo Fun to Local Traditions

Everyone has heard the expression "you can't teach an old dog new tricks." People use this phrase when it seems impossible to get a person or a group of people to adapt to new ideas.  Does Grandma have trouble understanding how Spotify let's her listen to Sinatra without a record player?  Have a hard time getting Snapface to make you look like a dog?  That's what I'm saying!


At Pixilated we've heard this phrase all to often, but on a larger scale.  As a growing event tech company in the Mid-Atlantic, we've come face to face with the reality that more metropolitan cities like New York, Boston, and San Francisco think we're just old cities sans facelift.  Whether it's Baltimore, Washington DC, or Philadelphia, we're just the old dog who never learned anything new.  

We get it.  Our cities are proud of the traditions that have formed here.  Our cities are OK with doing hard work without the glamour or attention.  But, Pixilated knows first hand how these old cities, our cities, are the first to use at least one new trick.  Baltimore, DC, and Philly are the first to take photo boothin' to the next level.

The Walters Art Museum, located in historic Mt.Vernon in Baltimore is one of our earliest clients; as a matter of fact we've been partnering with them since 2012. The Walters was established in 1934 and knows a thing or two about old dogs, but that hasn't stopped them from being some of the first to use our photo booth to boost their engagement with museum visitors, build email lists to drive re-marketing, and create awesome Walter's Art Museum branded material for social media.

Take a look for yourself.

Custom prints, DIY backdrops, props, using the Pixilated kiosk to teach history lessons, and allowing patrons to engage with the past.  Where else are you seeing that?  Only where Pixilated goes.
