In this Place - A public artwork for Lenah Valley


Work continues on In this Place – the public art project by artist Alex Miles - that is part of the Lenah Valley Retail Precinct Upgrade. Two murals are now complete and the artist is working with the City’s Public Art Coordinator and local building owners to resolve the detail and timing for completion of three further small mural works within the precinct.

A selection of excerpts from the stories and memories that have been collected as part of the postcard campaign will be used within a series of new seats and bus stops. It is also hoped that a sign will mark the start of the precinct at its eastern end, which will be illuminated, highlighting the phrase “In this Place”

    Thank you Lenah Valley

    A big thank you to everyone who sent us responses as part of the ‘In this Place’ project.

    We received so many wonderful stories about life in Lenah Valley – both hand-written cards and online submissions – and we will be sharing them with you in the coming weeks.

    Selected stories will provide inspiration for a series of murals by artist, Alex Miles, and be integrated into street furniture in the retail area as part of the Lenah Valley Retail Precinct Upgrade.
