Art on the Fence at Waterfront Place, Port Melbourne Reply

As part of Councils Vibrant Village project, this small community project livened up a dull fence at the entrance to Waterfront Place, Port Melbourne. Council worked with artist Trudy Rice, children from Port Melbourne Primary School, Spirit of Tasmania and Port of Melbourne.

Postcards to Port, showcased some of the children’s art and what they thought of Station Pier. The art is also dispersed with some historical photos, from the working Port years ago.

We are looking for this space to change regularly.  If you have ideas, let me know.

Mike Larkin from Channel 10 came and did a weather cross during the launch. The kids were very happy to work with him.

The Annual Scarecrow festival put on a quite a show again this year. The DIGIN garden is looking particularly great with many of the old fences and netting being removed and replaced with raised garden beds all beautifully pump full of vegetable goodness. On today at Murphy’s Reserve.
