Audiences can stroll by and experience the artists working on these murals or join one of two street art tours supported by Culture Night Dublin. The street art tours will stop at the live mural as it is being completed, as well as offering a wider view of street art in the city. The Icon Factory will also be offering a guided tour of the Icon Walk at 6pm. More details about these tours can be found in our programme.
