Crystal Brook Mural Consultation

9th July 2020

Crystal Brook residents are invited to provide ideas and inspiration for an exciting new public art project.

Port Pirie Regional Council is commissioning a mural to brighten the main street of Crystal Brook as a social infrastructure project funded through the Federal Government’s Drought Communities Programme.

The mural will be consistent with and complimentary to the local identity of the town and district and will contribute to a strong sense of ‘destination’ and ‘place’, while encouraging designs that envoke thought, discussion and further interaction.

The imagery will be developed in consultation with locals and be executed by established South Australian. artist, James Dodd. The mural will be painted on the wall of the Reflections building at 33 Bowman Street which will provide high levels of visibility, accessibility and tourism benefits.

Community consultation has now opened to enable the Crystal Brook community to have a say on the key themes and ideas for the mural. A brief survey is available from Council’s website (www.pirie.sa.gov.au/noticeboard/consultation)

The first round of consultation will be open until Thursday 23 July 2020. The artist James Dodd will develop a series of early design sketches based on feedback received and these drawings will be presented for a second round of consultation scheduled to begin on Friday 7 August 2020. The mural is scheduled to be completed in September 2020.
