It's been almost five years since all things Yayoi Kusama took over Brisbane's Gallery of Modern Art and left everyone with colourful, dot-filled and pumpkin-shaped memories. But Brisbanites can actually spy one of her artworks, Eyes are Singing Out, whenever they want to — and by simply going for a walk in the city.

If you weren't aware of that handy local tidbit, now you've just learned something. This town of ours boasts more than a few pieces of standout outdoor art, in fact, but it can be easy to mosey past it all and not pay these works enough attention. That's where Museum of Brisbane's new Public Art Walking Tour comes in — and it'll have you seeing and appreciating Brissie in a whole new way.

Starting at City Hall at 2.30pm most Fridays and Saturdays, this tour will take you to a range of eye-catching pieces sitting in plain view. Expect to see works from more than a century ago, far more recent installations and everything in-between. Don't just walk around looking at your phone like so many of us usually do, obviously.
