OpenClose Dundee are commissioning around 15 new doors for the Stobswell street art tour, just like the one created in the city centre last year, and the call for artists to put their work on those doors is now open. All you need to do is describe your idea for the design on a door and show some examples of your previous work. Each successful artist will receive £300 to design and paint their door, materials for painting the door will not be supplied.
The trail provides a good opportunity for strolling around the city, looking for the different pieces and sharing them online. It connects exposure of local artists’ work, explorations of Dundee and a new perspective of hidden urban spaces. It’s a great experience for a local artist that will make their work a key feature in the city for a long time.
All applications must be made before midnight on the 11th of February. For further details including how to apply please download the Artist Information Pack here.
And while you are here, why not watch a bit more of Stobswell from a few years ago?
