Leeds City Centre

Central Leeds, Leeds, LS1 1UR

You know those short descriptions that sit next to pictures in an art gallery? We’ve written them for buildings across Leeds.

For the next six weeks, the city is our gallery. You’ll find faux art descriptions installed at locations across town – from shopping centres, to workplaces, university buildings and more. These texts imply that each building – and everyone inside it – is a work of art.

Why? Because art doesn’t just exist inside an art gallery. It’s all around us – in the places where we live together, work together, feel together. Know this and you’ll be inspired wherever you are. This collection of buildings is a work of art. It’s art we walk past every day. It’s art we’re all part of. It’s Proper Art.

Use the map on our website to find It’s Proper Art across Leeds. Read as many as you can – they’ll only be up until January 5th 2020.


Locations are; first direct arena, Rose Bowl, Leeds Central Library, Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen, Leeds Grand Theatre, Accent Clothing, Victoria Quarter, Victoria Gate, Leeds College of Music, Leeds Bus Station, Leeds Kirkgate Market, The Leeds Library, Trinity Leeds, Leeds Corn Exchange, Leeds City Station, The Majestic, Central Square, Wellington Place, Water Lane Boathouse, The Tetley, Leeds Dock.
