Art on the GreenWay

image2For the 3rd year running Art on the GreenWay will be installed at the Northern end of the GreenWay at the Lilyfield Road Pedestrian Bridge, Iron Cove as part of the 2017 Inner West Open Studio Trail. Opening on Thursday 11 May, the original and provocative environmental art works celebrate the natural and cultural qualities of the GreenWay and reflect on continuing threats to our precious urban and natural environment in the 21st century.  

Inner West Council Public Art and Place Making Officer, Bronwyn Tuohy who curated the eight outdoor art works said “Art on the GreenWay reflects the talents and creativity of our inner west community in an innovative, ephemeral way. Artists are often inspired by the environment which surrounds them and Art on the GreenWay is a unique opportunity for them to express this using natural, made and found materials in an outdoor setting. We’re working to extend Art on the GreenWay along other sections of this unique urban environmental corridor in years to come”. 

Art on the GreenWay can been viewed anytime, day or night, from Thursday 11th to Sunday 21st May. Everyone is welcome to attend the official opening of IWOST and  Art on the GreenWay on Iron Cove Bridge, from 5.30 to 8.30 on Saturday 13 May. The event will take place at Stop 19 on the Precinct Map which you can access here.
