The Arts

Public art throughout Parramatta's streets, laneways and parks paints only a small picture of the diverse arts offering in the area. Whether you are interested in a matinee at Riverside Theatres, scoping out commissioned public art around town, dropping into the appointment gallery space at Parramatta Artists Studios, checking out a contemporary or digital performance at Connect Studios, taking a self-guided heritage art trail walk or visiting the Female Orphan School and Margaret Whitlam Galleries, there is something to intrigue all visitors and locals alike.
