Art for All - Blackness Public Art Walking Tour #dundeewestend

Dundee has an exceptional collection of over 500 sculptures, murals, mosaics and other forms of public art.    

Taking place tomorrow, Friday 18th October at 2.30pm, this free informal walking tour by university museum curator Matthew Jarron is part of the University's Festival of the Future, and will explore the role of public art in the cultural regeneration of Dundee, focusing on the pioneering Blackness Public Art Programme of the 1980s and the inclusion of artworks in the creation of play parks and other social amenities.

Please meet in the Lamb Gallery at the University of Dundee.     Participants take part in these walks at their own risk.     Please wear appropriate footwear.     There may be uneven surfaces and occasional stairs - please contact or 384310 in advance if you have any particular access requirements.   More details here.
