ART-Town Festival Returns For 2016

The Chapel Street Precinct is set to host the 2016 ART-Town art festival, headlined by none other than vivacious Melbourne fashion designer Rowena Doolan. As the face of Greville Street’s FOOL Clothing, it will be Doolan’s first appearance at a festival, now entering its seventh year.

Over two weekends, invited artists create works inspired by what’s around them while making the street their own very public studio. Visitors can interact with painters, collagists, photographers and illustrators as the creation unfolds. Expect to find sculptors taking over shop windows and sketch artists populating the surrounding parks. Local artists and retailers are encouraged to get involved and celebrate the diversity, history and arts culture of the surrounding Chapel Street precinct, with interests of expression open now.

ART-Town will take place around Chapel Street’s neighbourhoods including South Yarra, Prahran and Windsor on Saturday April 2 – Sunday April 3 and Saturday April 9 – Sunday April 10.
