The Longest Mud Painting In The World!

Over the weekend, Brisbane Square library teamed up with some people from Northey Street City Farm to hold a workshop where people could come along and contribute to the world's longest mud painting. Being a Northey Street initiative, it is completely biodegradable and will provide compost for future Brisbane vegetables! In the meantime, the painting is being added to as it is rolled up and moved around different parts of the community. It is made from newspaper glued with flour and water and painted on using different coloured muds found in and around Brisbane. It's going on display at the Autumn Equinox Arts Festival in Northey Street Farm on March 21st - by which time they expect it to be over 500 metres long!

I like the long table full of hands and brushes ... I bet the area was a mess ... probably a fun mess ...
