Water reservoir mural taking shape - 29 June 2016

Wagga Wagga’s largest public art mural is taking shape.

Mural artist Trina Collins has spent the past five days strategically spraying a myriad of colours on the side of an enormous water reservoir.

The reservoir, which stands eight metres high and 85 metres around, overlooks the city on top of Willans Hill.

Ms Collins is painting a series of faces on the reservoir, based on photographs she captured of Wagga Wagga students from Sturt Public School.

Being on the side of a water tank the artwork had to embody a water theme. Ms Collins paintings will feature the children cupping running water under a tap, drinking from a water fountain or alternatives to these themes.

The artwork is expected to be complete by the end of next week, weather permitting.

The mural project is a joint venture between Riverina Water County Council (RWCC) and Wagga Wagga City Council.

The public art project will cost $14,500, fully funded by RWCC.
