As the sun goes down, the blank back wall of SekoFood, next door to Extraction Coffee, comes alive from 6pm each night.  

A colourful projection will light up the night along the popular ‘Slacks Track’ pathway, near Moss Street before returning the area to darkness at 9pm.

The display features the works of 10 local artists with vibrant images that transition slowly to create a dynamic outdoor gallery.

“The projector, which is mounted on a steel pole, was funded through a $150,000 contribution from the Division 3 Local Infrastructure Program,” said a council spokesperson.


“This amount covers the installation costs, as well as ongoing maintenance and technical support ove the next two years.”

Division 3 Councillor Mindy Russell said the “dynamic mural” was a brilliant addition to the landscape of Slacks Creek.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to share this new initiative with Logan’s residents who will delight in having a bright new attraction so close to home,” Cr Russell said.

“I am proud to support the promotion of our local artists up in lights. With these images beamed into a public place, everyone can enjoy the show outdoors and for free in the evenings.”

The project is part of Council’s Arts Culture and Heritage Plan 2023-2027, and delivers on key outcomes from Council’s Urban Art Strategy, which seeks to improve city spaces with eye-catching art.

It also supports Council’s Nighttime Economy Strategy by encouraging local residents to explore the City of Logan after hours.

“The new lighting installation in Slacks Creek is designed to encourage greater use of the Slacks Creek green link (Slacks Track), while promoting the talents of City of Logan artists,” said the council spokesperson.

Mayor Darren Power said if the trial was successful, new artworks or other images could be featured at other times and locations.

“This project could have applications right across our city as we investigate new ways to inspire local artistic talents and improve our public spaces,” Cr Power said.

“It is a modern, innovative way to showcase our artists and encourage people to get out and discover more of our city.”
