My Little Pony at The National Gallery
Visitors to London’s National Gallery will be able to transform ten of the museum’s most famous horse paintings into MY LITTLE PONY portraits until 1 November, to mark the upcoming release of My Little Pony: A New Generation on Netflix.
The gallery is giving visitors the chance to transform equine classics from George Stubbs’ Whistlejacket to Theodore Gericault’s Horse Frightened By Lightning into Sunny Starscout, Izzy Moonbow and friends from the new film in a fun and educational interactive trail for families.
Guests are being encouraged to gallop to the gallery soon, as it won’t be around furlong, the MY LITTLE PONY Magical Gallery will be live until November 1st.
The unique augmented reality app, free to all visitors and accessible through QR codes around the gallery, will use image recognition to instantly augment ten iconic horse paintings into the New Generation of Earth Ponies, Unicorns and Pegasi, all brought to life by celebrated children’s artist Rachael Saunders.
What’s more, the new virtual artworks will feature original commentaries from stars of the upcoming film, providing fun greetings and facts straight from the horses’ mouths. Stars including Vanessa Hudgens, Sofia Carson and James Marsden all provide pop-up commentaries specially for the activation along with horse lover Jodie Kidd, who today unveiled the app at The National Gallery.
