The decks are empty and the turbines still and silent on this hulking steamer. For over three decades, the Duke of Lancaster sat on the banks of the River Dee in north Wales, slowly rusting away. To anyone who saw her, the ship was little more than another abandoned maritime relic, but that was before the DuDug project intervened – and artists turned what had become a giant eyesore into a colorful open-air art gallery.
