In a first for Queensland, high profile New York City artist Kelsey Montague was commissioned by Sunshine Coast Council to create a large interactive art mural for all the community to enjoy.
The artwork, #whatliftsyou is an interactive public piece that delights the senses and connects participants to the Sunshine Coast through social media platforms.
Visitors and locals are encouraged to photograph themselves with the artwork and share through facebook, instagram and other social media sites, using the hashtags #sunshinecoastcouncil and #whatliftsyou. Let us know what lifts you!
Now exhibiting at C-Square, Nambour, just outside the Majestic Cinema complex.
Kelsey Montague's interactive art murals reflect a unique worldview. Originally from Colorado, Montague has lived in Florence, London, New York City and Los Angeles. Singer Taylor Swift has shared a photo of her standing in front of the stunning wings in New York City.
Each work is intuitively created, revealing multiple, intricate layers. These 'drawings within drawings' are imbued with memories, dreams, emotions and, above all else, the artist's belief that everyone should have the opportunity to become a 'living work of art'.
