Free and accessible public art across the city brightens up streets and neighbourhoods, inspiring locals and visitors alike to explore new parts of Dundee. From murals to temporary exhibitions transforming empty spaces, they offer new perspectives of the city and encourage people to stop and linger.
In collaboration with communities, Open/Close Dundee has commissioned over 40 individual pieces of public art by local and international artists with new artworks and murals springing up all the time. Trails cover the City Centre, Stobswell and Lochee and aim to brighten up public areas, encouraging people to explore the city and places they may not otherwise visit. @openclosedundee
A public art project utilising hoardings surrounding Plot 10 in Dundee’s Waterfront Development. Each exhibition consists of 18 framed 4-sheet billboard posters and, when possible, a public engagement event. Exhibitions are programmed in response to Dundee’s changing Waterfront Development and provide opportunities for artists and the wider public to raise critical questions about our collective future. #sharingnothoarding
