Historic Heart Art Prizes

Historic Heart of Perth Inc's first project sees 65 planter boxes and benches installed across Perth's east end, from Barrack Street to Irwin Street. This is a patina of what's West Australian, with the planter boxes painted by West Australian artists and planted with West Australian native plants.

There were two artist prizes for this project, with the winners announced at a celebration on Monday 27th November 2017. James Giddy won the 2017 People's Choice Award (selected via online voting) and Clare McFarlane won the 2017 Judge's Choice Award (selected by Nathan Giles from the Perth Public Art Foundation). Congratulations to James and Clare, and all of the artists who took part in the project.
