What's On 

Exciting New Box Hill Mural Project

Mural paintings along the six retaining walls in Market Street Box Hill have now been completed.

Buff Diss was selected through an artist Expression of Interest that occurred earlier this year.

Painting commenced in early October with the project and it was completed at the start of November 2023. 

The painted artwork responds to the theme Sustenance: Drawing on the diverse food, ingredients and local food growing practices that make Box Hill unique. Buff’s work is a beautiful abstract representation of the theme to brighten up Box Hill and make it more inviting.
