Art comes alive in Slacks Creek

Local talent to light the way along Slacks Creek

Slacks Creek cyclists and joggers may want to start their exercise sessions after sunset this month.

A colourful projection will light up the night along the popular ‘Slacks Track’ pathway, near Moss Street.

The mesmerizing display, which illuminates a plain wall next to the pathway, features the works of 10 local artists.

Digital art to delight Slacks Track users

The vibrant images are transitioned slowly to create a dynamic outdoor gallery.

The projector was funded through the Division 3 Local Infrastructure Program.

Division 3 Councillor Mindy Russell said the “dynamic mural” was a brilliant addition to the landscape of Slacks Creek.

'A prominent outdoor art gallery'

Division 3 Councillor Mindy Russell launches the new lighting installation in Slacks Creek.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to share this new initiative with Logan’s residents who will delight in having a bright new attraction so close to home,” Cr Russell said.

“I am proud to support the promotion of our local artists up in lights. With these images beamed into a public place, everyone can enjoy the show outdoors and for free in the evenings.”

The project is part of Council’s Arts Culture and Heritage Plan 2023-2027, and delivers on key outcomes from Council’s Urban Art Strategy, which seeks to improve city spaces with eye-catching art.

It also supports Council’s Night Time Economy Strategy by encouraging local residents to explore the City of Logan after hours.

Mayor Darren Power said if the trial was successful, new artworks or other images could be featured at other times and locations.

“This project could have applications right across our city as we investigate new ways to inspire local artistic talents and improve our public spaces,” Cr Power said.

“It is a modern, innovative way to showcase our artists and encourage people to get out and discover more of our city.”
