Part of Open Studios in the West

Visit Council's permanent artist-in-residence space Artsbox during the Open Studios in the West weekend to see how the space is utilised by artists - the artist-in-residence during November is Liz Walker.

During her November residency Liz will work with the community to populate a wooden wall map. People passing by or visiting the Footscray Library will be invited to write messages to a friend or draw a picture on a selected map segment. The individual pieces will fit together to form a colourful and fun map of the City of Maribyrnong – a message map celebrating its diversity, culture and the people who live here.

Drop in during Open Studios and participate in creating Mapping Messages, and view the work thus far.

As part of Open Studios in the West, Liz will be giving an artist talk in Artsbox on Saturday 25 November - see the Artists in Conversation listing for more information on her talk.
