Colour Box Studio presents Foot It by Wynter Projects – a series of guided walking and riding tours of galleries, creative spaces, pop-up performances, public art and backyard studios. Meet the innovative creatives, superbly talented makers and the Avant-garde artists.
This FOOT IT tour will be a craft inspired art walk in Footscray designed for Craft Cubed 2015. Artist Annee Miron will open her studio offering us a glimpse of her large-scale sculptures, hand-crafted by reused cardboard (see featured image, ‘Falling’). We will visit one of Annee’s extraordinary pieces down a local alleyway. 100 Story Building artist-in-resident Anne Kucera, will offer insight into her incredibly intricate paper pop-up pieces and window display. A stroll down the street to an artist in a shipping container at The Art Box. Around the corner to VU Metro West where Anna Branford will give an introduction to Craftivism; crafting with political activist intent. Providing us with conversation and a coffee at Co-café. *Itinerary subject to change.
These unique walking and cycle tours were developed by Chantal Wynter to present the dynamic Arts in all its variations. These walks also serve to consolidate and expand the creative networks in the Western Suburbs. The arts are of interest to many but often can be hard to find. A two-hour guided walk/ride offers an intimate experience and a taste of the various forms of art. Chantal Wynter quotes :”It’s very fulfilling and immensely enjoyable developing the program and presenting to a curious audience”.
