The public art movement has reached Dubai thanks to S*uce Projects. This amazing initiative has asked local artists to take one of the many benches littered around the city and decorate it so that they can remain a practical fixture while also becoming a stunning art piece.

By encouraging people to "Find a bench. Fall in love," S*uce Projects also encourages people to open their eyes and smell the roses with their works.

One participant of the S*uce Projects interestingly incorporated their art bench into social media by creating one with the hashtag #xbench. They then "asked their Facebook fans and Twitter followers to complete the sentence "If I were a bench…" which created significant social media buzz for Art Dubai," according to PSFK.
