ADA are thrilled to announce that artists Datsun Tran, Robert Hague, Saffron Newey, Al Stark, VEXTA, ELLE & Melanie Young have completed new works for the new development of East Brunswick Village. The commissioned murals are part of a substantial commitment to arts and culture by the Banco Group.

Congratulations to artists Datsun Tran, Robert Hague, Saffron Newey, Al Stark, VEXTA, ELLE & Melanie Young who were commissioned to create new works for the new development of East Brunswick Village. For the past two years ADA have been the driving culture consultants leading place making at EBV and have been dedicated to making art a part of everyday life.

EBV have primarily engaged local artists to commission public art that will stand the test of time. There will be art throughout EBV, in a range of mediums including sculpture, photography, and murals.

Congratulations to Meagan Streader who was commissioned on a public art project for Longriver's new development East Central in Box Hill. Together with Project Managers APP and architects Fender Katsalidis, the work will exist as a linear lenticular light artwork mounted within the pillars at the corner of Young St and Whitehorse Rd, Box Hill.
