Art Across The City 2012 is an exhibition of contemporary public art located across the City of Swansea, with twelve artworks on show by a diverse selection of international and UK-based artists.

There are five new commissions for the event which include Joanne Tatham and Tom O’Sullivan’s Shelters in front of Swansea Museum, decorated with their own distinctive designs; on Oxford Street, David Blandy presents The Devil meets Dylan Thomas, a videogame where you play as Swansea’s literary hero; Fiona Curran uses two trees in the grounds of St Mary’s Church for the foundations of An Accident Looking For Somewhere To Happen; David Marchant’s Cowin’ Lush panels were created from the drunken scrawls of revellers on Swansea’s infamous Wind St and Jock Mooney’s graphic drawings of local icons are turned into the Swansea Kebab, situated in Castle Gardens. Two further works commissioned earlier in 2012 by the artists Sean Puleston and Rik Bennett are sited on High Street as part of LOCWS International’s Art Across The High Street programme.

Five permanent LOCWS International commissions further support the 2012 programme. These include works by Bristow Lloyd, Mark Folds, Bermingham & Robinson, Niamh McCann and Bedwyr Williams.

An Information Hub will be sited on Oxford Street with details of Free Guided Tours, Workshops, Seminars and our Education Programme.
