Did you know that Marulan will host a mural as part of the Southern Tablelands Arts ‘Paint the Town’ street art festival? It will be painted on the side of the Marulan Memorial Hall.
A community meeting was held on Friday September 8th 2023 to discuss potential mural sites and themes, it was well attended by local people and the style of the mural was explored by all who came along.
Nationally established artists supplied through Southern Tablelands Arts will work along side local talent to create murals that reflect our recovery journey since the 2019 black summer fires. Murals represent the voices and insights of fire effected community members through co-design workshops held with fire effected community members. A celebration of art that brings colour, vibrancy and culture to our region.
PAINT THE TOWN is the brainchild of Wollondilly based street artist Joe Quilter, who brought his dream of a street art festival to STA and before you could say abracadabra PAINT THE TOWN became a reality. Their only addition was to say let’s do four street art festivals and really have some fun.
