Only Alessandra and I worked today on the mural as we are carefully trying to fit in the remaining pieces of artworks. I have been working on the ladder along the top and putting in the history pictures and text. Alessandra is finishing all of the lower areas off. At this stage we are still waiting for the pictures to be fired for the Indigenous Australian history part so that wall is still fairly empty.
The deer park mural is a collaborative effort of
Deer park Pharmacy,
Gallery Sunshine Everywhere
St Peter Chanel School,
Deer Park North Primary School
Deer park West Primary School
The mural is made of ceramic features made by 640 community members, set in a background of mosaic.
The mural celebrates the history of Deer Park and was officially opened on December 9, 2014
