We’re collaborating with our good friends the Stobswell Forum and Open/Close Dundee to create new street art – at large scale! This will, of course, be a fabulous addition to our already-existing science art work.
We would like an artist/artists to develop a mural on the large gable end on the side of the sheltered housing complex there. The street has recently had a “pocket park” installed at the end nearest to Albert St. This has planters and benches, as well as more planting being added to the wasteland that borders the car park opposite.
There will also be another mural created on the smaller gable on the sheltered housing complex. The artist for this (Lauren Morsley) has already been selected. The large mural in Craigie St should complement these. We would also like the design to be bright, welcoming, and colourful. The new street art should also reflect the work which takes in the Wellcome Centre for Anti-Infectives Research at the University of Dundee. This includes work with medicine, treatment of tropical diseases, parasites and DNA, and much more.
You can find out more about the call and how to submit here. The deadline is February 25, so time is short!
