St Arnaud has taken the first step in its revitalisation with the recently opened street museum bringing new life into the main street of the town. The town is focusing its energy on promoting local artists and talent, highlighting the importance of regional art in the area.

Under the joint guidance of Maudie Palmer AO, architect Jan van Schaik, and urban planner Mitra Anderson-Oliver, as well as local business owners and residents, the street museum has been a resounding success in drawing the public eye to St Arnaud and the work of resident artist James Geurts which is featured in shop fronts throughout the town.

The surge of activity in the area will continue with the renewal of a local hotel, a new restaurant, and an upgrade to the town hall which will include exhibition and studio space, alongside the artist-in-residence program.
