Sydney’s Queen Victoria Building lights up for good cause
With the COVID-19 pandemic wreaking havoc with retailers across the world, one of Sydney’s iconic shopping hubs has joined forces with the city’s creative industry to support the revival of retail with the launch of a new artistic installation.
The Queen Victoria Building (QVB) will be welcoming the new installation, Time to Illuminate, from now until the end of June, along with history tours with EWOL designer Angela Lowe-Liddell - the mastermind behind the installation - on Thursday and Saturday afternoons.
Time to Illuminate stands 17.6 metres high and is made of various upcycled materials, including over 4,500 Swarovski crystals taken from the iconic QVB Christmas tree/
Lowe-Liddell took inspiration for the giant, hanging sculpture from the QVB’s stained glass window.
“There is an overwhelming sense of excitement that can be felt across (the) Sydney CBD as businesses including the QVB join forces to contribute to the post-pandemic recovery,” said Vicinity Centres Head of Marketing, Brand and Experience, Corrine Barchanowicz.
