KNOX COMMUNITY ARTS CENTRE
The Knox Community Arts Centre hosts a varied program of live theatre, music, community arts and school holiday programs.
David Booth and Carla McRae rejuvinated the exterior through a mural tha wraps around the southern and eastern walls. Playful, theatrical elements alluding to the stage provide context
for the building — expressive masks with cascading ribbons
concealing and revealing faces, large gestural hands, musical
notes and warped instruments are hidden within folds of colourful
curtains and winged creatures. The colour palette was chosen for its mysterious and moody
qualities, alluding to the darkness of the stage, allowing bright
muted-primaries to illuminate the masks and highlight the playful
gestures within the design.
