The dictionary gives us definitions for urban and art as thus:
from the Latin urbanus, "of or pertaining to a city or city life,"
the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance.
Urban art is therefore expressions of more than the ordinary pertaining to city life.
Hutt City Council are proud to promote this arts trail. The urban art murals contained in the trail have had huge visual and emotional impact across the city as they have been created. We want to share and celebrate this work with the artists, funders and most importantly the communities who have inspired the trail. We see urban art as an important medium for telling the stories of communities and we hope you will enjoy this trail with us.
We would ask only that you would come with open minds, activate your imaginations, and enjoy the journey.
