Walk To Art Melbourne

by Wednesday, November 2, 2016

Walk to Art in Melbourne takes you to the heart of the art… Art in the street, art in artist-run spaces, art in galleries. The concept is to break down barriers, those which can make walking into a gallery or studio intimidating.

To enjoy Walk to Art you do not need knowledge of art, just an interest and curiosity. Over two or three hours (depending upon your chosen walk) you will no doubt find yourself chatting, socialising and learning from art dealers and artists. You can explore your own thoughts and feelings about what you see, and will be guided by an art consultant with a passion for both walking and discovering – the lovely Bernadette Alibrando.

Bernadette’s vision is to take the snobbery out of art and she adores showing off Melbourne’s hidden gems.

After the ‘Full Art Tour’, the group shares wine and cheese and that gives another great opportunity to compare and discuss ideas with Bernadette and other tour participants.
