Art walks and tours
Public art creates a sense of place and identity, marking out an area within a city. It can stir controversy and imagination and become a meeting place or a marker within a community. Public art makes creativity a landmark.
Art Buzz allows members of the public to hear artists and other art experts talk about the creation and meaning of artworks in our public art and monuments collection. At present more than fifty pieces are included, with more coming on line in the future. This audio guide to the City's collection can be heard here.
