Inspired by the 1949 folio “Our Street”, by South Melbourne artist, Maurie Carter, this project is a re-imagining of artistic social commentary.
Carter’s images will be recreated in chalk on the streets of South Melbourne, so that they may connect with the community, and in the spirit of Carter, promote fellowship, peace and freedom.
The artist will create one image per month for five months. The project started on 2nd October, at the corner of Montague and Dorcas, which is just one block away from MCC. So much is dependent upon the weather, but towards the end of the first week of work for each image, things will be starting to look good, and finished over the weekend or the beginning of the second week.
