The Levee is Changing Colours With Living Sculptures
This autumn, The Levee is Changing Colours with a program of creativity, fun and art, and the first time five temporary artworks have been installed along the Riverside Walk and The Levee Shared Zone.
Living Sculptures is inspired by the shapes and colours of the natural world and explores our relationship with nature in an urban environment. Each piece has been created by a different artist from Maitland and the surrounding region.
The Levee Public Programs Officer David Graham says 'it's great to see the different ways the artists have responded to nature in the space their artworks are located and the materials they have used. I hope art lovers and anyone else interested in seeing something a little different come to check out the sculptures while also enjoying everything else the precinct has to offer.
The artworks include a crocheted web by Louisa Magrics, an interpretation of the Hunter River's history by Jen Denzin, creative planter boxes by Ellie Hannon and a series of natural mandalas by Bridget Taylor.
Additionally, The Levee is boasting some l lighting in the trees at The Bourke Street Link and a new play space area called The Colourful Café on the corner of High and Bulwer Street.
Up until 21 May, The Riverlink will host Staging Colours, featuring free performances every Friday night among the existing LIVE at The Levee schedule.
The fun continues with Creative Capers, a program full of kid's activities and entertainment at The Levee Shared Zone on Wednesdays from 21 April until 26 May.
The sculptures, tree lighting and new play space will remain at The Levee until the end of May.
