Description: Melbourne’s inaugural Art Gallery open-house in the CBD – at night!
A first for Melbourne. There is a global trend changing the way people view art. Internationally new dynamic art events are being created, such as Gallery Weekend Berlin, Hong Kong Artwalk and Roppongi Art Night in Tokyo.
