Event description

Description

The University of Dundee, Art UK and Historic Environment Scotland need your help to photograph and record Dundee’s amazing collection of public art!

Dundee has an exceptional collection of sculptures, murals, mosaics and other forms of public art, but there is currently no complete record of these. Thanks to the support of Art UK’s Sculpture Around You initiative and Historic Environment Scotland’s Urban Detectives programme, we’re hoping to record all of it and make the information and images available online.

Over the summer we’re holding a number of events for volunteers to get involved, starting with eight photography sessions in different parts of Dundee. For this one, please meet outside The Crescent at 2.30pm.

The other sessions are:

Sunday 15 July (am) – City Centre West. Meet outside DCA at 10am.

Sunday 15 July (pm) – City Centre East. Meet outside The McManus at 2.30pm.

Monday 16 July (am) – Blackness and West End. Meet outside Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design (Matthew Building) at 10am.

Monday 16 July (pm) – Waterfront. Meet outside Bridgeview Station Restaurant at 2.30pm.

Wednesday 18 July (am) – Botanic Gardens / Ninewells / Technology Park. Meet in Botanic Garden car park at 10am.

Wednesday 18 July (pm) – Camperdown Park and Templeton Woods. Meet at Camperdown Wildlife Centre entrance at 2.30pm.

Saturday 21 July (am) – Hilltown and Stobswell. Meet at back entrance to Dundee Central Library (Victoria Road) at 10am.

Thanks to Art UK we have a small budget to cover travel expenses for volunteers within Dundee – please keep bus tickets as we will need proof of expenditure. We can also provide refreshments for everyone who has booked in advance.

You are welcome to come to as many or as few of the sessions as you like. Please book separately on Eventbrite for each session.

Please contact museum@dundee.ac.uk for further information.
