our bright town
“Our Bright Town” is a Shadow catching mural art project being created in the heart of the New Brighton Pedestrian Mall.
New Brighton Project have engaged with local Artist Jeremy Sauzier to create this artwork.
With a palette of sunrise/sunset colours. The mural will reflect and include the landscape and people of the area providing a sense of familiarity and connection for our local community and an artistic insight of our community to visitors.
Our Bright Town is collaborative in its approach and inclusive of the people in the area as it invites an aspect of public participation in its creation.
Jeremy is a local New Brighton artist who has a close connection with the community. This artwork is more than just a mural as it will include over 100 shadows of locals.
It will be a snapshot of our wonderful and diverse community.
