What is ART Town?

Art is the lifeblood of Melbourne. Creativity is as essential to our identity as fashion, food, festivals or sport are. This is nowhere more evident than around Chapel Street’s neighbourhood; from the galleries of South Yarra, to the hidden studios of Prahran to the painted laneways of Windsor.

Our annual ART-Town project celebrates art, artists, our local people and places. Over two weekends, invited artists create works inspired by what’s around them while making the street their own very public studio. Visitors can interact with painters, collagists, photographers and illustrators as these unexpected moments of beauty, amusement, reflection or intrigue unfold. You might stumble upon a sculptor in a store window,  or a gaggle of sketchers under a tree!

Visit ART-Town from 11am-3pm during one of our live art weekends!
