Memory Lane by Michelle Simon

‘Memory Lane’ will be a temporary painted art piece set alongside the river walkway from Bridge Street toward King House.
Using the manholes along this walkway I will create bright, colourful “bullet point” style illustrations of historic buildings, memorable sporting moments, community strength, local beauty and little blasts from the past for people to reminisce on as they walk.
Inspired by the unique doorstep sign at the Royal Hotel I will be incorporating mosaic style painting to tie it all together, reminding us that even though something looks broken and unused, it can be pieced together and revitalised into something beautiful, piece by piece.
