Great ARTdoors secures artists and locations

Artists have been appointed to create art installations along the Great Victorian Rail Trail and art location sites have been selected including Tallarook at the start of the trail and a site between Trawool and Granite.

Mick Harding (Ngarga Warendj) has been selected to create a Trail Long series of works. Artists selected to create the seven larger art installations along the trail are:

  • Donna Marcus
  • Yu-Fang Chi
  • Christabel Wigley (Wigley World)
  • Louise Paramor
  • Tai Snaith
  • Cara Johnson
  • Robbie Rowlands

Biographies of the selected artists and a map of the art installation locations at Murrindindi Shire Council’s online engagement platform The Loop.

The next phase of the project will see the detailed design for each of the sites finalised in preparation for work on the installations to begin. The works are expected to be installed before the end of April 2023.

Updates will be provided on The Loop engagement platform and social media as the project progresses including some sneak peeks of the works as they develop.

The $1.2 million Great ARTdoors Project is a partnership between Murrindindi, Mansfield and Mitchell Shire Councils, funded through the Victorian Government Regional Tourism Investment Fund Stimulus Round, as part of the COVID-19 tourism stimulus package through Regional Development Victoria.
