Arts Map Exhibition at Dalby Forest

Event details

Events at Dalby Forest - The Courtyard, Dalby Forest
Free event for on Daily from 24 November until 18 February

This exhibition celebrates the collection of art works throughout the forest and launches the first Dalby Forest Arts Map.

Dalby Forest has hosted artists for many years, providing a place to create unique pieces, inspired by the stories of the forest and its naturally distinctive qualities and landscape. The arts are dotted throughout the forest, to tell each story in a purposefully selected location, bringing the forest and the art to life. This exhibition provides a central hub for all of these artworks – bringing together examples of the artist’s works, and a behind the scenes look at the sketches and models used in the creation of these pieces.

Maps will be available in the exhibition space to use to explore the forest and locate the artworks. Under the title of each artwork is a ///what3words location. Enter these locations into the what3words website or app and get a pinpoint location to guide you to the exact location of each artwork.
