Vulcan Street in Moruya will become a colourful spectacle for locals and tourists during the weekend before Christmas as a gift from Moruya Business Chamber, River of Art, Rotary Club of Moruya and Southern Phone to hearten the community and bring hope for the future.
The LUMINOUS light installation will illuminate the facades of shopfronts and heritage buildings – including Moruya Courthouse and two murals created during the River of Art Festival on the corner of Church Street and Vulcan Street near the Blue Heron Cafe – on the evenings of 17-19 December, 2020.
During the three nights, Vulcan Street will be a focal point for mini mural painting by local artists on temporary walls, live music performances and late-night shopping, set within the display of multicoloured static lighting and textured lighting programmed on a changing loop. Textured lighting is marked by a repeating pattern created by components within the light – examples include water waves or concentric circles moving in a cycle.
The light installation will be open for the local community and visitors to enjoy in the spirit of the season, with event sponsors hoping it will provide an opportunity for residents to experience their community ‘with positive hearts’ and to join together in hope for the future.
