Water tower mural painting begins first thing Monday morning
February 11, 2022
The transformation begins on Monday.
The Brightsiders artists start work on the painting of Casino’s water tower mural first thing Monday morning.
The vision for the mural is to create an iconic artwork for the town. As part of the artists’ preparation, they visited Casino and observed a no-nonsense, but positive attitude to life.
The design has four panels to portray the area and its people.
Eastern side: Facing Walker Street, this side of the mural shows cattle grazing in the dawn light. A dairy farmer and his dog kneel among the sunflowers.
Northern side: Emerging out of the frame facing Lees Avenue is the local Aboriginal totem – the platypus.
Western side: Stapleton Avenue will feature a lagoon scene with a black swan at its centre.
Southern side: Facing Hare St, in this part of the mural, a eucalypt forest features around a lagoon with a figure in the foreground looking out at the forest canopy opening to reveal the Far Eastern emu in the distance.
