Description

Fresh and Salty comprises five major new artworks in different parts of regional Victoria. And yes, as the name implies, the theme is water.

The main aim of a big project like this is to show that artists aren’t just people who paint pictures and put them on a wall in a gallery. But that art can be used in different ways to assist communities with understanding and responding to local issues. And artists can be employed in all sorts of organizations - you can have an artists engaged with anything from spreading a message to do with water, to working in a school, to producing something totally ephemeral.

Fresh and Salty demonstrates that art isn’t just a rarefied thing but that it can and should be integrated into everyday life. And projects can involve people who have never thought of themselves as ‘arty’ before.
