Fox­ton Bridge art in the can

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Moya Stevens

WORK is well un­der­way at the pub­lic fa­cil­i­ties ad­ja­cent the Fox­ton Bridge in Moss­man with the first of a se­ries of mu­rals com­mis­sioned by Dou­glas Shire and the Re­gional Arts Devel­op­ment Fund.

The project is be­ing led by lo­cal artist Lenice Scho­nen­berger with the as­sis­tance of Dan ‘Wally’ Wall­work, Lester Port and Ker­rod Hart. “It is look­ing re­ally good and when it’s fin­ished it should be great,” Lester said.

The full story of the paint­ing will be told when the project is com­pleted, but the theme is very much fo­cused on the lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment.

Coun­cil has plans for pub­lic art at Wil­lie Pye Team­sters Me­mo­rial Park, Craiglie and Bill Reese Ro­tary Park.
