Detour Melbourne Street Art Guide
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Street art is now one of Melbourne's greatest cultural attractions. Yet unlike the cities established galleries and exhibition spaces, there is no front door or information desk, no maps and no descriptions.
Detour is a curated guide to Melbourne Street Art that makes some of Melbourne's most celebrated, well hidden and controversial street art available to everyone.
The App includes an interactive map showcasing important street art of social, cultural or historical significance and a gallery view that lets you browse.
An essential feature of the app is the inclusion of curated descriptions for each art work to give you important information about the artist and the artwork you are looking at.
The app is curated by Adrian Doyle, Melbourne Street Tours and Matthew de Moiser and includes an introductory text to get you thinking.
This app is supported by the City of Melbourne, Melbourne Street Tours and Pollen Interactive.

This app is great I just got it. But it could have a bit more art works, or even a option where users could load there own pictures of street art. But it is a good app I will keep
It is great that we can find and appreciate contemporary art while traversing Melbourne's interesting and vibrant culture. This app adds dimension to the Melbourne experience and there should be more like it. Bravo!
I've been waiting for something like this. Beats wandering down blind alleys every time.
