Urban Artworks to Liven Up Tehran for Norouz

A total of 646 artworks will adorn different districts of Tehran for the third edition of the art project ‘Baharestan’ (literally meaning ‘abode of spring’), in which temporary artworks are placed in different parts of the city to brighten up the capital for marking the arrival of spring and Norouz (the Iranian New Year starting March 21).
Artworks chosen for the project deal with subjects related to New Year’s celebration, Mehr News Agency reported. 
According to Mojtaba Mousavi, the cultural deputy of Tehran Beautification Organization, the artworks are classified in four categories, namely environmental art, trove of trees, graffiti and Norouz eggs. The works will be installed before the current Iranian year ends and would remain there till April 20.
Of the ideas submitted to TBO by artists, 101 are for the Environmental Art section that includes street installations and 40 belong to the Trove of Trees section, in which artists will decorate the dead trees of Vali-e-Asr Street.
