Glow Winter Arts Festival

9th August, 2017

From tomorrow until August 20th, the winter night will be illuminated for a brilliant festival across Melbourne’s City of Stonnington.

Melbourne’s City of Stonnington are embracing the chillier, darker winter season by illuminating some of their most iconic venues, public parks and gardens with glowing neon art installations and architectural projections.

Now in its fourth year, the Glow Winter Arts Festival begins tomorrow night with the unveiling of an array of newly commissioned artworks. Encounter luminous butterflies on Stonnington’s lamp posts in ‘Advice from a Butterfly’ by Skunk Control, or find glowing giant flowers and colossal mushrooms in Central Park aka ‘Alice’s Garden’ by Melbourne-based firm, Mandylights.

Projection artists Nick Azidis and Rose Staff are set to transform historic buildings with ‘Wonderlight’, and The Centre (for) Projection Art will also be lighting up the nooks and crannies of Greville Street. Meanwhile, Sowinski/Cullen and Associates will install a host of interactive, illuminated objects for ‘Untitled’, James Voller’s ‘Enchanted’ will shine an immersive light on familial places, and Carla O’Brien’s work, ‘Neon Glow’, will see giant  letters finding homes around the council. Be sure to check out some spectacular theatre-meets-circus and opera performances too.

‘This is an opportunity to discover our City in new ways. From our bustling streets of Chapel and Greville Streets to our magnificent gardens and heritage buildings. Wander and discover the magical whimsy of these beautiful pieces,’ welcomes The City of Stonnington Mayor, Cr Jami Klisaris.
