VETERANS PUBLIC ART TRAIL
This event aims to highlight the contribution of the veteran community to Melbourne’s built environment through the range of public art by veterans.
The works include 3D sculptures and 2D murals as well as buildings designed or sponsored by veterans as artists, architects and arts patrons.
Led by ANVAM Chairman and Director, Mark Johnston, the veterans public art walking trail will follow a 4 km path over approximately 2.5 hours, from Little Collins St and down St Kilda Rd, concluding at the former Repatriation Clinic. During the trail the host will draw attention to approximately 20 public artworks and buildings by approximately 20 different members of the veteran community. The tour will also touch on sites of historical significance to the military and veteran community.
Conversation will be encouraged between arts trail participants in the periods between encounters with public art.
