Hobsons Bay City Council is rolling out the red… orange, yellow, green, blue and violet!
Council has painted the forecourt outside the Altona Theatre at the Hobsons Bay Civic Centre, transforming it into a rainbow to bring a vibrant splash of colour to the space for the festive season and as a lead into Midsumma, a celebration of all things LGBTIQA+ in January and February.
Pictured below are Cr Briffa, Cr Grima and Tony Mead; local artist and signwriter from Industrial Art Sign Co who headed up the painting of the public art piece with his team of painters Nick, Anthony and Finn.
