The Art Pass Reimagined

Anu Patel to reimagine The Art Pass in Chelsea Shopping Precinct. 

Due to the planned demolition of the Chelsea Station as part of the Level Crossing Removal Project, Kingston City Council has partnered with artist Anu Patel to create a mural in homage of The Art Pass: a large scale public mural which was created for the Chelsea train station underpass in 2013 by the artist. The original artwork aimed at improving safety and civic pride within Chelsea and was created in conjunction with local residents and schools.

 PROJECT UPDATE:

We are delighted to announce that after undertaking community consultation with local schools and community members, the Art Pass Reimagined mural will commence in early 2022.

Artist Anu Patel has loved working with the community to come up with an exciting mural design and she will soon bring it to life.  The mural will be painted on the pedestrian laneway wall of 1/423 Nepean Highway, Chelsea. Pop past and say hello to Anu as she works and for updates on this exciting public art project please follow us on social media.
