Walk and discover art

06 Nov 2017

A recently launched Harbourside Docklands Art Trail app encourages art lovers to explore the original public art in Docklands.

The art trail features 26 pieces of urban art and offers a snapshot of Docklands’ public art program and covers a range of themes including land and sea, past and present, humanity and technology and what it means to be Australian. 

The walking trail has been divided into three sections: “Real and unreal”, “The dynamic earth” and “You, us and them”. Each section is around 2.5km and takes about one hour to complete.

The walking trail focuses on a key selection of major art works that typify the diversity of artworks in Docklands. The app will be expanded and updated as new artwork is delivered throughout the area.

The majority of the featured artists are Melbourne-based, such as RONE, Callum Morton, Emily Floyd, Alexander Knox and Kate Daw, with international artists Antony Gormley from the UK, Virginia King and Wang Shugang also included.

Several artists have provided commentary on their work.

They include RONE (Edge of Your Seat), Sally Smart (Shadow Trees), Mark Stoner (The River Runs Through It) and Stewart Russell (Civil Twilight End).

The app has been developed for both Apple and Android and can be downloaded from the Apple Store and Google Play.

The Harbourside Docklands Art Trail brochure is also available at Library at The Dock and Melbourne Visitor Centre.
