Dublin Canvas is an idea, a public art project intended to bring flashes of colour and creativity to everyday objects within County Dublin.
The project takes previously unused public space and transforms it into canvases to help brighten up each area, making Dublin a more beautiful place to live, work and visit.
Dublin Canvas utilises traffic light control boxes. These boxes previously designed to go unnoticed will now become canvases for artwork. Leading on from the successful completion of over 430 pieces to date within County Dublin throughout the Summer/Autumn 2015 – 2019. Dublin Canvas is now seeking submissions of artwork for a further 15 boxes located throughout the Fingal County Council area.
This is a fantastic opportunity to have your artwork displayed to the public in prime locations. Completed artwork will brighten up and turn these once dull, heavily tagged boxes into beautiful works of art, transforming each area into a walking gallery of public art.
Artists and community groups who wish to participate and paint one of this Summer’s available boxes are asked to carefully read the guidelines below on how to enter and then forward on their correctly prepared submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
