Wagga Wagga Public School students who helped create designs used in the transformation of a wastewater pump station at Simmons Street park have given the art installation the thumbs up.
Created by artist Carla Gottgens in April, the vibrant creative treatment was funded by Council.
Cultural Officer Lauren Reynolds recently visited the pump station to meet with the students who workshopped the design with the artist.
“The students have been involved in this project from the start and were so excited to see the finished mural,” Ms Reynolds said.
“There are all these amazing and colourful scenes featuring native flora and fauna and sporting activities, inspired by the images the students created during the workshop program with the artist.”
The stunning new mural at the pump station at Bolton Park (near the skate park) has also been completed.
Artist Jeff McCann held workshops with young people aged between 12 and 24 years to create the artwork which features a ‘Mosaic of Selfies’.
