Dunbar Public Art Project Sheet

Dunbar Community Centre

The ‘Peoples’ Panorama’ Project consists of 37 large screen printed, double glazed windows that form a significant part of the public face to Dunbar’s new community centre at Bleachingfield.
The images take inspiration from the famous conservationist John Muir who was born and lived in Dunbar. His appetite to see the landscape and environment from different perspectives has prompted a series of works that look to combine local contexts (physical landscape and social lives) into a collaged wall of glass on the main elevation of the building.

The collage has included images taken through Artists Walks – where we have collected stories and photographs of residents’ chosen places and objects to reflect the history and future ambitions of the community. We have set up an evolving source of images and stories through Facebook that is enabling the community to voice opinion and engage with the completed artworks. The Facebook Page can be found by searching for ‘Dunbar Points Of View’.
