Arty-Farty

Murky Waters Studio and Gallery, Down laneway, 126 Hanran Street, Townsville City QLD 4810, Australia

Arty street library with an outside sure to delight. Painted, sculpted and cried on by four real artists! (Hopefully) filled with arty-farty books inside too!

The Arty-Farty Street Library is located at Murky Waters Studio and was co-created by four artists: Rob Douma, Carly Sheil, Benny Mac and Michael Pope. Arty-Farty is intended as an art project to house arty books but we’ll see what happens. It’s a self-made construction with each artist reimagining a side in their chosen style. It’s also a reaction to the cookie cutter “sameness” of street libraries, a yearning for difference, of outsider art and the organic nature of grass roots creation. We also hope it has some good books in it from time to time.
