TOGETHER Smells like community spirit in Freo

A striking new 2,000sqm artwork on the façade of a Fremantle building stands as a beacon of hope and solidarity in these uncertain times. Titled TOGETHER, artist Morag Myerscough hopes the people of Fremantle and Perth take some comfort in the artwork and the knowledge we are not alone in facing this trial.

Visible from as far away as Monument Hill, the work has a new resonance currently, as we face the challenges of staying connected while maintaining social distancing and remaining at home. The work is the brainchild of renowned London-born artist Myerscough and spells out the word “together” in enormous colourful letters along the façade of the car park on Henderson Street.

Myerscough’s famous work around the world is centred on creating a sense of joy and belonging for all those who encounter it. TOGETHER is Morag Myerscough’s first permanent artwork in Australia.

Artist Morag Myerscough’s giant mural TOGETHER can be viewed now along the façade of the car park on Henderson Street, Fremantle.
