Dublin Arts Council unveils two new Riverboxes, Equal East and Equal West, small public artworks inspired by geocaching. The artworks were created by Dublin artist Don Staufenberg, who interpreted the Dublin Link bridge and the history and vision of Dublin, both old and new. Relevant artifacts have been incorporated into each artwork. Be among the first to find the new artworks during this official International Geocaching Day event. (Geocode GC9C7ZE)
