Corridor of Modern Art (COMA)
Have You Seen the New Art Installations Along the Intercity Cycleway?
Over the months of May and June, 10 murals across 7 locations along the Intercity Cycleway between Moonah to Mona have been painted by local Tasmanian Artists.
The Glenorchy City Council commissioned the artwork as part of their Economic Recovery Program, a new street art project to activate the Intercity Cycleway between Moonah and Mona and develop a tourism asset for the City.
Working in partnership with Vibrance to deliver this project, Council and Vibrance put a call out in January for expressions of interest from local Tasmanian artist to apply. Over 70 applications were received from Artists all around Tasmania. A selection panel including representatives from Destination Southern Tasmania, Mona, Glenorchy Arts and Culture Advisory Committee, Moonah Arts Centre, Glenorchy City Council and Vibrance assessed the applications and selected 10 artists as the pioneers for the Corridor of Modern Art.
This collection of murals define a key tourism asset along the Intercity Cycleway from Moonah through to Mona. Residents and tourists alike can traverse a vibrant corridor of colourful street art installations, creating a destination and experience in itself to be enjoyed by all.
