Art in the Wetlands
An exciting ephemeral art exhibition lasting two weeks in mid September 2013 showed featured artworks made specifically for Wonga Wetlands highlighting the themes of sustainability and the environment.
The works interacted with the trees, water, and earth providing visitors with a unique experience in the beautiful springtime Wetlands.
Contributing Artists included Dr. Michael Shiell, Jane Gillings, Bronwyn Cossor, Natalie Ward, Kath Fries, and Vernon Bartlett.
Native Flora and Fauna Panels
In March 2013 AlburyCity installed a series of 5 Cor-Ten panels adjacent to the city bypass footpath. The panels, designed by local artists Micheal Laubli and Leti Gavioli, feature an array of local plants and animals laser cut into the steel.
The project came about in partnership with The Department of Attorney General and Justice as a method to combat graffiti in the area.

Qview digital gallery has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2011. Projecting into QEII Square and the laneway between the Library/Museum and Bellebridge Hague building.
Works projected are from both local and international artists and have to be seen to be believed.
Spark It Up
An initiative of the AlburyCity Youth Council in partnership with Essential Energy electrical boxes around Albury were selected to be painted with student designs in an effort to beautify our city and combat tagging and graffiti that regularly occur on the blank boxes. A combination of positive public feedback and a dramatic reduction in tagging on the selected boxes means that AlburyCity is planning to continue the campaign into the future.
