Get down and arty at the GreenWay by checking out the local art scene or create your own masterpiece.
The GreenWay area houses a vibrant and diverse arts community complete with galleries, arts schools, active artists and arts based community groups. We invite you to come and view the work of local artists at three galleries across the GreenWay catchment.
This spectacular mosaic at Lords Road - Hawthorne Canal tunnel has been created with many thousands of volunteer hours and a phenomenal number of small pieces. The story of the project is told in a short video by Katherine Buskariol. Officially opened in August 2011, the work was coordinated by Nola Diamantopoulos of the Studio of Spontaneous Creativity. The Lords Road Mural project is a joint initiative between Leichhardt Council, RailCorp, Kegworth Public School and IWEG.
