Event description
A rare opportunity to hear directly from renowned Australian artist Stuart Green 'In Conversation' with arts leader John Waldron.

About this Event

Co-hosted by City of Gold Coast and Gold Coast Open House this unique event is a rare opportunity to hear first-hand from Stuart Green, the artist commissioned to create the much-loved public art work entitled 'All Eyes on Us - The Commonwealth Star', located on the Esplanade Surfers Paradise.

The Commonwealth Star embraces the idea of celebration, while capturing a sense of beginning. The work also explores colour, bursting form and the vitality of tropical flowers, along with surfboards as a symbol for vibrant coastal culture.

This event is an 'In Conversation' discussion with the artist facilitated by John Waldron – together Waldron and Green will provide a glimpse into the both the artistic and fabrication processes behind the commission.

Join us for an afternoon of thoughtful conversation and discussion in a venue located just metres away from the commission.

The Commonwealth Star was commissioned by City of Gold Coast and Queensland Government for Festival 2018 as part of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
