The Electrolux factory in Orange is due to close in 2016. This exhibition was looking back at its 70 years of manufacturing history. The exhibition included work by school students and established local artists, many of them from Colour City Creatives. The materials they used were often unique too- fridge doors and waste materials from the manufacturing process.
The school kids did interesting work on their fridge doors.

The fridges painted by established artists were fabulous. It made me wonder why all fridges aren't painted.
Many local artists made responses to the factory, often telling quite personal stories.

I would never have thought it possible to make art from a vegetable crisper. But it was indeed very cool!
And these particularly cool lights made from waste! Plastic extruded from pipes when the materials were changed.
