The Art of Christmas Returns to the East End
Following the success of the inaugural trail throughout the Adelaide Riverbank in 2017, The Art of Christmasreturns to the East End in 2018 to celebrate the festive season as well as the creativity of the Adelaide Arts sector.
Eight South Australian artists will design and create custom Christmas trees that reflect their interpretation of the meaning of Christmas.
Inspired by similar creative trails in Europe and the US, the Art of Christmas program has returned to showcase the work of local artists and encourage people to explore the excitement of Lot Fourteen.
Located amongst the cultural treasures of North Terrace, nestled against the Adelaide Botanic Garden and a stone’s throw from some of the best restaurants, bars and shopping in the city, Lot Fourteen is one of the most exciting urban redevelopments in the world.
Something is always happening at Lot Fourteen, with a curated range of programs to suit anyone and everyone. Whether day or night, there’s events and activities inviting people to come and discover this new destination. More than 30,000 people have already visited Lot Fourteen to attend public events, festivals, pop-ups, and programs. So, Lot Fourteen is the perfect location to showcase this array of innovative and extraordinary artists.
The 2017 Art of Christmas program included impressive works and big names and this year’s trail will be no different, with artists such as Seb Humphries, Laura Wills and Anna Dowling putting paint (or other artistic surprises) to festive canvases. A selection of locations within Lot Fourteen have been selected to showcase the artworks to workers on site, local visitors, residents, and tourists.
Once you’ve completed the trail why not spend the rest of the day exploring the vibrant East End? Adelaide’s premier retail and hospitality precinct is bustling with shops to peruse, things to experience and new flavours to taste.
The Art of Christmas will be on show from Friday 7 December 2018 to Sunday 6 January 2019.
