Vibrance brings art to the streets

CENTRAL Hobart will be awash with colour on 25-26 March when the street art festival “Vibrance” takes on the challenge of painting four walls over two days.

The festival celebrates Tasmanian street artists and all of the walls will remain painted as part of the City of Hobart’s Urban Art Walls program.

The council is partnering with the festival to commission five local artists to work on one wall to create the biggest mural in the state, and three small walls in Elizabeth, Liverpool and Collins streets.

The main festival site at 82-84 Bathurst Street will also include live music, food vans, live painting, a skate course and a bar on the Saturday night. It will open from midday on Saturday until 10pm and midday on Sunday until 5pm.

More information on the festival is available at www.vibrancefestival.com

The City of Hobart’s urban art walls program encourages large-scale artwork to brighten city streets, develop local artistic talents and help deter graffiti.
