After the success of the city centre tour we have secured funding to extend the street art trail up to Stobswell. We're now looking to commision artists to create more street art on a whole load more doors.
A street art trail of painted doors around the city, created by local artists, brightening up the lanes, closes and alleyways of Dundee.
Open/Close Dundee was created out of an idea around the lunch table at Fleet Collective. To bring great street art to Dundee in a way that brightens up the unexplored nooks and crannies of the city centre. So far there's 18 individually painted doors by 18 local artists and a trail to guide you round them all.
Each pin on the map represents a painted door created by a local artist. The trail should take you about an hour to complete and you'll need to wander down alleyways and peek round corners to find them all. Please be careful and stay aware of your surroundings but don't worry, none of locations are down dead ends so you'll always get out the other side.
We're now running our tours on a the first Saturday of each month, meeting at 10 at the Penguin Parade (outside St. Mary's Church). We take in all 18 artworks created as part of Open/Close Dundee, whilst giving you information on the project, artists and pieces themselves.
Tours take around 1-1.5 hours and are on a "pay what you think it's worth" basis. If you'd like a place on the next tour just drop us a message on our facebook page.
