Dublin Art in Public Places Cell Phone Tour

The Dublin Art in Public Places program is more than 20 years old and has grown from one sculpture in 1990 to more than 70 sculptural elements in 2011. The Dublin Art in Public Places cell phone tour provides a current, comprehensive and interactive guide to the collection.


Interviews with artists and those close to Dublin’s award-winning public artworks have been recorded and prepared in approximate two-minute segments that speak about the inspiration and creation of each sculpture. The tour encompasses Dublin’s large-scale commissioned artworks and those acquired through the three-year Titration on-loan exhibition series.

The cell phone tour was developed to re-introduce longtime residents to artworks that are part of the Dublin landscape, while educating visitors and newer residents about what the artworks represent, the artists who created them and the stories they have to tell. The tour is available 24 hours per day, anywhere phone service can be accessed, whether from a landline at home or via cell phone while viewing the artworks.

Tour content will be updated periodically to include additional information from artists and other professionals who will contribute to a deeper understanding of the collection.

The Dublin Art in Public Places Cell Phone Tour has been generously supported by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, a grant from the Ohio Arts Council and a Bed Tax Grant and in-kind contributions from the City of Dublin.
