A curated art space in the back streets of Byron Bay – lovin’ it!

pm3 is currently involved in a very exciting community artscape project. I’ve posted a number of times about other places with fantastic public art and now we have an opportunity to be involved with our local version. This one is a fully curated version and encompasses converting a whole laneway to a curated streetscape art gallery on a permanent basis. It was the brain child of our mayor and two local companies, Creative Road and Fullerton Creative. The former is headed up by Rebecca Townsend who, as a curator, has a formidable background in public art spaces (Sculptures by the Sea – Bondi, Sydney) and together with landscape architect Jane Fullerton,  they’re collaborating with both local and international artists to transform one of our dingiest laneways into a permanent art space.

The above images are renders of the proposed works and pm3’s first job was to create a logo using the colour palette from the above renders…

The project was launched this week by Byron Shire Mayor, Simon Richardson, who gave an incredibly inspiring and motivational launch speech. The project requires $100,000 to enable the vision to be fully executed and a crowd funding campaign will be launched shortly. Any passionate philanthropists and business owners who are inspired by the project can transfer their life savings to fast track the vision here.
