Arts Centre Melbourne’s lawn will be the site of a new Christmas cottage installation Deck the Houses from Thursday 21 November 2013 to Sunday 5 January 2014.

Inspired by the twinkling, light-covered houses that line Melbourne’s streets at Christmas time, Arts Centre Melbourne has commissioned renowned production designer and artist Christian Wagstaff to create Deck the Houses.

Reminiscent of the popular Bouquet gladioli installation in July 2012, the free pop-up artwork promises to be a visually spectacular art installation featuring a metallic mirrored house frame, which will then be decorated with illuminating Christmas lighting concepts.

Debuting in 2013, Deck the Houses will be an ongoing annual Christmas event. Over the next three years, different artists will be commissioned to add to the outdoor installation, which will eventually grow and expand into an entire Christmas village on Arts Centre Melbourne’s lawn.
