This twilight street party has food and free entertainment for you to enjoy, as it celebrates the end of Summer of Street Art.
Summer of Street Art is an arts program that entailed new mural commissions throughout the City of Melton. Artists from the Western regions of Melbourne were selected to develop murals for some of Melton's amazing community groups and will be painted from 18 Feb to 11 March 2019. Selected groups were paired with an artist and you'll soon see these murals popping up on power boxes in various locations.
At this event, you'll hear from some of the artists involved in the Summer of Street Art, and meet the major mural artist George Rose. With a name like George, she's often mistaken for a boy George will talk about her arts practice in preparation for the creation of her new mural in Caroline Springs.
The event also celebrates the achievements of eight local community groups presented in power box murals by street artists around the City of Melton. There's been a blockbuster series of workshops and PHIBS' solo exhibition, enjoyed throughout the summer holidays. Imagine Melton Arts & Culture run FREE art workshops, so why not register to be a part of the program.
