Carlton Library is located at 667 Rathdowne Street, North Carlton. The Light Box installation is located on the south wall of the library, along Newry Street near the junction of Rathdowne Street.

Carlton Library plays an important role in the delivery of services to the community and many members of our community, of all ages, frequent this facility. In 2014, the building underwent some upgrades to its foyer area to improve both the appearance and amenity.

The Public Art Light Box Program continues this enhancement of the library’s profile and the surrounding streetscape, while also ensuring contemporary art is part of the everyday experience of our community and visitors to Yarra.

Council calls for Expressions of Interest from artists to produce and exhibit new works for the Carlton Library Light Boxes annually and any future opportunities will be promoted in Opportunities.
