Two Sydney artists with backgrounds in mural and graffiti art have created a colourful mural to cover the roof of the new Harden Murrumburrah Information Centre.
Scott Nagy and Daniel Cydes painted the mural at the History Hall Building in Murrumburrah which will open on Friday the 19th of July.
The aim of the mural is to attract attention to the new Visitor Centre. The mural is a pictorial narrative of Harden Murrumburrah and district, celebrating the natural, economic, historic and tourism attractions of the region. Colourful kites adorn the sky while steel rail tracks line the brown earth. Representing the Light Horse and Chinese mining history are a horse and dragon, while cherries and stone fruits illustrate the bountiful nature of the region.
Committee chair Kerry Provan describes the mural as spectacular and believes it provides a substantial drawcard for the new Visitor Information Centre. “It is looking fabulous and we are very excited,” she said. “We have been waiting a long time for the Visitor Centre and the Committee has put a lot of work into it.”
According to Mrs Provan, the artists revealed that while researching techniques for the project they were unable to find anything similar in Australia.
