When I received a call from Melbourne Central, a large shopping complex located in the heart of Melbourne, and was asked if I could conduct tours for them, I was a little unsure if there was enough art in the centre to chat about.
I have been pleasantly surprised and I am happy to announce 2 free walk to art tours at Melbourne Central this September:
Date: Sunday 21 September and Sunday 28 September
Time: 2pm to 3.30pm
Bookings: Essential (go to Melbourne Central‘s website)
Did you know that Melbourne Central is home to one of Victoria’s largest public artworks? The 61-metre long mural, completed by Geoff Hogg in 1984, is now heritage listed and one of the highlights of our tour.
Join us and you will also see:
- Hamish Munro‘s inflatable sculpture “Filling the Mould”, which won the inaugural The Kisho Prize (2013) and is designed to inflate according to the number of people inside the centre at any time (photo, top right).
- Work by street artist INSA
- geometric sculptures by Caleb Shea (photo, bottom left).
Let’s travel the lanes around Melbourne Central and discover something you have never seen or noticed before.
I look forward to seeing you on our tour!
