ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET…
Art Night have partnered with Pullman Hotels to launch a brand new project celebrating the many public art works throughout two of the UK’s most exciting cities; London and Liverpool.
The Pullman Art Run will lead Pullman guests and locals along a selected cultural running trail for each city, offering a 5km route departing from either Pullman London St Pancras or Pullman Liverpool.
Each route has been carefully designed to reveal a captivating selection of the neighbourhood’s finest outdoor art works, from street-art and iconic statues to augmented reality and thought-provoking contemporary sculpture.
If you’re taking part, share your pictures with us using #pullmanartrun #upyourgame.
A limited edition map will be available to pick up at either hotel, or if you prefer to go digital please download the PDF below. Each of the maps will feature a limited edition print of an artwork along the trail on the reverse.
You will need to download the Acute Art app for the Augmented Reality work on the London route – this can be done via scanning the QR code below or if you’re on mobile, by clicking the hyperlink above or the button on the PDF.
