Public art on public toilets - new street art
The Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery was approached by the Southern Downs Regional Council to deliver a project of the enhancement of the Stanthorpe and Wallangarra public toilets.
Six local artists, who had mural work experience and success were selected to be a lead artists and create public art on our local “dunnies”. What was important to the team was to employ aspiring artist to contribute to the project and build capacity and confidence within our local artistic community. It was very exciting to see this project progress and the camaraderie which grew between all of the groups through sharing their experience and knowledge as they went. The artists reported that residents and tourists have been mingling with the artists and were very interested in this exciting public art that locals and visitors can enjoy.
