Yesterday we celebrated the completion of a new public artwork in Pascoe Vale South, as part of Council's public art program, RenuWall.
The Mayor, Councillor Angelica Panopoulos, was joined by State Member for Pascoe Vale, Mr Anthony Cianflone, Senior Maintenance Manager at Transurban Alanna Solole, artists Stephanie Hughes and Alice Glenn, and Pascoe Vale South Primary School students to celebrate the new mural.
The mural is a joint commision between Merri-Bek City Council and Transurban, to beautify our public spaces and engage our arts community through meaningful public artwork.
Artists Stephanie and Alice led the primary school students through workshops, where they brainstormed actions that help the environment, and together, completed a mural that spoke to themes of recycling, carbon reduction, waste management and reforestation.
The RenuWall program also addresses graffiti hotspots in Merri-bek, and seeks to engage with a diverse range of local artists, commissioned to design and paint the murals.
