More art for Wonthaggi laneways

Bass Coast Shire Council has funded yet another street art project to liven up yet another laneway in Wonthaggi.

The Wonthaggi Secondary College Community VCAL students have already begun painting the blank wall alongside the Wonthaggi Union Community Arts Centre (WUCAC), with the artwork to be completed within the next three weeks.

Following the success of the 2015 Abraham’s Lane street art project the students will once again be directed by well-known local artist and VCAL teacher, Tom Murray-White,

Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, said the wall mural will reflect all the crazy, colourful, wonderful events that happen inside the walls of WUCAC.

“This mural is part of Council’s commitment to revamp Wonthaggi’s beloved Arts Centre, and this work will add yet another laneway attraction to the growing number of street artworks around the town,” Cr Rothfield said.

“We’d like to thank the owners of the neighbouring property who have allowed access and use of the wall as a blank canvas.”

Cr Rothfield said street art projects get more young people involved in the arts, gives them a ‘voice’ and celebrates their passions.

“The Youth Action Plan highlights Council’s commitment to engaging young people in the arts and we’re proud to support this project.”

Keep an eye out on the wall as it develops and changes over the coming weeks!
