Crystal Brook Mural Consultation - Stage 2

6th August 2020

The Crystal Brook community have shared their ideas and inspiration for an exciting new public art project – now, this project enters the second stage of community consultation.

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 painted on the wall of the Reflections building at 33 Bowman Street which will provide high levels of visibility, accessibility and tourism benefits.

Ninety people completed a survey last month to share their views on what they associate with historical and contemporary Crystal Brook life. Prominent themes to emerge were agricultural life, history and native flora and fauna.

South Australian artist James Dodd has been commissioned to paint the mural and he has created a design proposal booklet describing the inspiration and meaning behind the concepts. Two design and two colour options are provided to be voted upon, while residents are also encouraged to provide other suggestions and feedback.

The design booklet and a brief survey are available from Council’s website (www.pirie.sa.gov.au/noticeboard/consultation)

This second round of consultation will be open until 12pm Friday 21 August 2020. The mural is scheduled to be completed in September 2020.
