June 29, 2023 marks the premiere of Warrior season three on Max. In the lead-up to the premiere, Max announced today the unveiling of interactive murals in three cities – Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco.
Collaborating with multicultural artists, the murals feature iconic images of Bruce Lee in front of elements that bridge the gap between Chinese and American history. Artists Swank One created the Los Angeles mural, Vincent Ballantine for the New York mural and Vogue + Agana for the San Francisco mural.
An in-person unveiling of the three curated, interactive murals took place in each city today with Warrior cast members and producers including Shannon Lee (San Francisco), Olivia Cheng (San Francisco), Perry Yung (New York), Dianne Doan (Los Angeles), and Andrew Koji (New York) in attendance.
The interactive murals were made through the use of web-based augmented reality (AR) technology. All that is required is a smartphone and scanning of the QR code on each of the murals. This is an immersive experience that will show some of the historical weapons from the show in 3-D and a sneak peak preview of season 3.
Additionally, through a partnership with the Chinese Historical Society of America, the Max Multicultural and Digital Innovation teams created an exclusive AR walking tour anchored around key locations of San Francisco’s Chinatown.
Here are all the specific locations of the murals to check out. All murals will be available for viewing for around four weeks.
Los Angeles: 1200 S Hope Street, Los Angeles, CA;
New York: 149 Hester Street, New York, NY;
San Francisco: 965 Clay Street, San Francisco, CA;
