Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — Along with local residents, I recently joined the Art Town walk put on by the Chapel Street Precinct. Attendees were treated to a showcase of artists using Chapel Street as an inspirational canvas. The final results were impressive at the Art Town awards night at Chapel off Chapel with many impressive pieces of art, all inspired by Chapel Street. Shopping strips like Chapel Street are the heart and soul of local communities. Innovative, creative events like Art Town bring new life, new visitors and new shoppers. Congratulations to all artists involved, to Art Town producer Margaret Kernich, president of the Chapel Street traders John Lotton and to all members of the committee for another terrific event.
