The ‘Wall to Wall Fes­ti­val’ has el­e­vated the small Vic­to­rian town­ship of Be­nalla to the ranks of a re­gional street art cap­i­tal with lo­cal, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional artists cre­at­ing new mu­rals on pub­lic walls, some over three-storeys high, from 9 to 12 March. Take a guided tour around the city and view the works of Guido van Hel­ten, Ad­nate, Rone, DVATE, Sirum and Kaff-eine, to name a few; stum­ble upon tem­po­rary, in­flat­able sculp­tures by An­thony Lis­ter, or visit Be­nalla Art Gallery’s ‘Born on the Street’ ex­hi­bi­tion. Ad­di­tional high­lights in­clude a moon­light cinema, two new satel­lite sites on nearby si­los at Gooram­bat and Devenish, as well as a vir­tual re­al­ity com­po­nent sim­u­lat­ing what it feels like to be a street artist.
