Next time you are shopping at Ashfield Mall, you must visit the artwall on level 4 next to Aldi.
The mural at Ashfield Mall is a joint collaborative artistic venture between Ashfield Mall and Ashfield Public School in designing hoarding to be displayed around a retail construction site. This work was imagined and facilitated by Ashfield Public School’s Artist-in-Residence Karen Manning assisted by Student Learning Support Officer, Jane Bennett and amalgamated original artworks created by students at the school.
The escalating situation of COVID-19 in July 2021 meant that this work was completely made during lockdown and with students learning from home. This resulted in the voluntary submission of 146 individual artworks made by 88 students from kindergarten through to year 6.
Thank you and congratulations to all the participating students and Karen Manning from Ashfield Public School who created works for the mural.
