Discover the Art Trail...
We have developed ‘Look Around You’, Arts for Health MK’s, Milton Keynes University Hospital collection, art trail app and made it available FREE to download for patients, staff, visitors.
︎︎ you can explore from home too.
The Look Around You app takes you on a trail around some of the artworks in non clinical areas. The app includes images of the artworks and information about the artists, which form part of the largest public art collection in Milton Keynes and features significant local and international artists.
Instructions for using the App
- Download the app from your app store (select the logos above or search ‘Arts for Health’ in your app store)

- When the app first opens you will see a location request, if you are at the hospital following the trail, in allowing the request, the app will alert you when you are standing next to an artwork so you don’t miss any. ‘Deny’ the location if you are following the trail remotely.
- When the app opens you will see the menu page. Select ‘Take the Tour’ to see a map view, follow the trail and hand-pick your artworks. Select ‘All Artworks’ to scroll through one by one.
