Carnarvon Central Mural takes shape
Work on a community mural at our shopping centre Carnarvon Central in far-north WA has recently commenced.
The mural will provide a dramatic entry into Carnarvon’s town centre, enhance the Carnarvon Central building, and be a significant attraction for visitors and tourists alike.
FRP partnered with the Shire of Carnarvon and Rio Tinto to call for an expression of interest for the mural. An independent panel was formed to score the submissions received. The panel assessed the submissions based on their connection to the theme, creativity, and technical ability.
Local Ningaloo artist Sadie James, in collaboration with Toni Roe, was awarded the mural based on the concept Burrowing Bees. Sadie James said, “The concept is based on the Burrowing Bees as they are unique to Carnarvon and the Gascoyne. The backdrop will be the colour of the country, and nothing says warmth more than the orange tones of the land.”
FRP values public art and the economic opportunities and cultural benefits it provides for artists and the community.
