Striking artworks lead the revitalisation of Hurstville public spaces

01/06/2020


A pocket of Hurstville CBD which has been crying out for a revamp will soon be given an artistic overhaul in response to key recommendations of Georges River Council’s Hurstville ‘Heart of the City’ Place Strategy and CREATE Georges River Cultural Strategy.

As part of a broader city revitalisation program, a new art project is being installed on the corner of Dora and MacMahon Streets. Designed by artist Mandy Salter, a.k.a. MAN.De, the mural will also extend to the four carpark exhaust stacks at the location.

“MAN.De’s new mural will replace the existing Miles Franklin themed mural which was completed back in 2003. Based on the insights from our community, the new work will inject fresh, eye-catching art’ said Mayor Greene.
“The Hurstville ‘Heart of the City’ Place Strategy aims to provide a vision, priority projects and key actions to revitalise Hurstville.

“Talented artists are invited to our city to enhance its vibrancy. We want to reimagine our city, showcasing art and culture and I look forward to sharing this new art work with our community,” added Mayor Greene.

The community is encouraged to provide input on this new public art project via Council’s YourSay platform between 3 June and 18 June https://yoursay.georgesriver.nsw.gov.au/hurstville-mural-project
