Open Every Door
Art & culture
Open Every Door is a mural created by artists Briony Galligan, located in Alfred Deakin Place, next door to the Art Gallery of Ballarat. Open Every Door consists of two wall paintings (each with a six-month life-span) and each abstract wall painting references queer histories and art makers, as well as abstract drawings made by Deakin’s Spiritualist contemporaries, such as Georgiana Houghton (1814-1884). The painted works will be completed with various size brushstrokes, in keeping with their hand-drawn design process.
