Discover Creativity Everywhere
Download the Explore Art NL mobile app today for iOS and Android phones.
NEW this year, we’ve developed an online version of the app for those who prefer to use Explore Art NL with their favourite web browser.
Featuring 112 outdoor murals, sculptures, memorials and yarn-bombings across Newfoundland and Labrador, Explore Art NL allows users to browse works by location, medium or artist. Information about each work, the artist, the location and its significance is included, often with links to additional information and videos. Learn more about works near you or plan a trip to discover something you’ve never seen before using the map and directions features. You can even ask the app to notify you if you ever come within 1km of a given artwork!
We created Explore Art NL because we believe in the power of art to draw people together, to start conversations, and to attract visitors to the unique landscape and talented artistic voices of our province. Public art also plays an important role in humanizing built environments, reflecting our evolving culture, and invigorating public spaces, inviting people to spend more time in a location.
We hope Explore Art NL will help members of the public, tourists, art-lovers and the “art-curious” among us discover the artworks in our own backyard, and appreciate how paint, steel, bronze, rock, and yarn can be used to generate conversations, experiences and a sense of place. We encourage people to use the app to interact and engage with public art safely and invite them to share their images on social media, helping promote municipalities across the province in the process.
