Beats and Brushes 2017

A Palmerston North alleyway, connecting two main streets, went from dingy and dark to vibrant and light in October 2017. Berrymans Lane, between Broadway Ave and Main St, is so well-used that the Palmerston North City Council thought it needed a spruce-up to make it safer.  Seven artists were let loose with an array of colours and designs, each bringing their own flair to the lane.
