Imagine More (Everything Imaginable)
Liverpool City Library features Rose’s mural created with colours that reflect Liverpool City Council.
The mural uses light to achieve dual meanings. In daylight, the mural reads 'Everything Imaginable' implying that the use of a library is a realm of the imagination. At night, a message reveals a neon light, which implores the community to imagine more.
Rose, a Melbourne-based artist, abandoned her formal design training to pursue a multidisciplinary art practice using colour, gradients and type to spread her message.
In 2016, she won Liverpool Council’s first annual Borrowed Wall Art Prize.
Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre’s own technical installer Phu began painting in 2009.
His work, which took four days to finish, depicts Liverpool through the image of a nest.
Nguyen believes nests represent the hard work and care of a strong family leader. The colourful piece captures the strong presence of families in Liverpool, likening the area to a nest – a place for families to build a home and start a new life.
Liverpool’s Harmony Tree
Liverpool’s Harmony Tree is a reflection of the richness of cultural diversity and language, including Aboriginal heritage, which makes up the fabric of Liverpool.
The Harmony Tree features the translation of the 2021 Harmony Day theme, “Everyone Belongs” in various community languages, including the local First Nations language, Darug, as well as Arabic, Hindi, Serbian, Spanish, Filipino, Vietnamese, Simplified Chinese, Italian and English.
The leaves of the Harmony Tree are made up of handprints of local community members, signifying Liverpool’s ongoing commitment to an inclusive and cohesive community.
