New Culver City Narrated Walking Tour Available From Otocast App
Following on the heels of the recent release of the Downtown Cultural Walking Tour Book—which Martin Feinberg, Realtor, notes celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Art in Public Places Program—residents and visitors can now also listen to a narrated tour of the city by downloading a mobile app created by Otocast.
The app can be downloaded by visiting the App Store and downloading the Otocast (Travel) App at no cost.
The new mobile app will allow people in the Culver City Real Estate area to learn about public art and historical buildings in downtown Culver City. Those who use the app will be able to listen to local artists, City Historian Julie Lugo Cerra, and other Culver City residents as they tell the interesting stories behind different city sites.
Culver City Mayor Thomas Small stated, “I want to invite you to enjoy walking through either Tour One or Tour Two, both of which begin at historical buildings. As an architectural writer and consultant, I have a particular fondness for some of our cherished buildings, as well as the public artworks that so effortlessly fit into their built surroundings.”
Besides the new audio tour, GPS pins are also available to guide listeners to specific sites. There are also multiple photographs and written text in the app too.
