Wyong art centre offers 3D display

Residents and visitors are being encouraged to visit Wyong town centre to discover three engaging street art installations – an interactive mural on the historic Chapman Building, a bamboo lantern installation and 3D pavement artworks in Tightrope Lane.

The mural and lantern installations will be exhibited until 10 March, whilst the pavement artworks on Tightrope Lane will remain as permanent fixtures.

The art installations are part of Council’s initiatives to contribute to the arts culture of Wyong, attract visitors, activate underutilised spaces and add to the vibrancy of the town for the benefit of local businesses and residents.

The art installations provide the perfect backdrop for a social media selfie and visitors are encouraged to share photos online and tag #lovecentralcoast, #lovewyong #thechapmanbuilding #galleryprecinctwyong #tightropelane  #ZestEventsInternational
