Kicking off on August 1st, SEEK Contemporary Urban Arts Festival is gearing up for a colourful return to Dundalk next month. Due to run for a total of eight days, the town will turn into an outdoor art gallery of sorts – one that can be enjoyed by both locals and visitors.
A number of largescale street art exhibits have been programmed for public spaces in the heart of the city with SEEK 2020 promising to carry on the successful legacy of last year’s festival. Now in its second year, this year features an exciting line-up of national and international artists including Aches, Omin, Claire Prouvost, Friz and Chula Mente to name but a few.
According to organisers, the town centre will be transformed into a massive artistic canvas to illustrate more of Dundalk’s unique history with the inspiration coming from the locality’s rich heritage. Exhibits will highlight figures and themes including Dorothy McArdle, Sailor Sharkey, Paul Kavanagh and Brigid of Faughart.
