Please join Her Place Women’s Museum Australia and The Women’s Mural Documentation Project in celebrating the launch of Re-imagining the Women’s Mural - a virtual tour. and artists, Megan Evans and Eve Glenn announce a forthcoming virtual tour of The Women’s Mural: From Bomboniere to Barbed Wire.  Re-imagining the Women's Mural – a virtual tour will be an exciting and interactive way to re-discover the development, history and significance of the much-loved Melbourne icon since its creation in 1986.  A unique example of Melbourne’s famous street art, the defacement of this feminist mural in February 2016 caused an outpouring of community support for this significant artwork.

The Women's Mural: Bomboniere to Barbed Wire, originally located at the GAs and Fuel site in Smith Street, Fitzroy, was created and painted by Megan Evans and Eve Glenn in 1986. In September 2019, the wall that housed the mural was demolished and the mural not longer exists, but Re-imagining the Women’s Mural - a virtual tour, now allows viewers to digitally experience and discover the history of one of Australia's most significant feminist murals via mobile and electronic devices.

Come and celebrate this much-loved Melbourne icon, a unique example of Melbourne’s famous street art created by and about women.
