Have you seen the new flags flying high along Bay St? Each is designed by local artists and residents. Port Melbourne Resident Amanda Tonkin-Hill has won first place for her oil painting, Summer.
The Port Melbourne Business Association has sponsored this event and it has really added to the Vibrant, fresh and alive feeling within Bay Street.
This project is a great example of community collaboration with local artist Trudy Rice organising the artists and competition and the business association sponsoring it.
I hope it is the first of many annual event competitions. The flags will be displayed until the end of April 2015 – so go for a walk and check out the great designs.
