We Say/You Say: Street Art

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Upper Hutt Leader

Kia ora Upper Hutt,

What's your opinion on street art? Are there any spots in your community that could do with a mural?

Construction sites and other disused structures around Wellington are getting facelifts, with local artists putting their touch on areas in a state of flux.

Wellington based artists Xoë Hall, Miriama Grace-Smith and Gina Kiel make up part of the Love Local: City Artwork initiative, with their work set to add vibrancy to revamps around the city.

The collaboration between Wellington City Council and WellingtonNZ has $60,000 which covers printing, installation and commission.

Paint us a picture! Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments featured in the Upper Hutt Leader.
