More than 80 artists took to the streets of the Chapel Street Precinct as part of the 2014 ART-Town Project 29 March – 18 May 2014.
The annual project and following exhibition provided a unique opportunity for artists to respond to the life and rhythms of the Chapel Street Precinct – being out in the open and seeing first-hand how the precinct evolves over the day – from the bustling traffic and push of the pedestrians to local characters of the area.
