New map unites Bunbury’s artistic creations

Kate FieldingSouth Western Times

Exploring the abundance of artistic creations scattered across Bunbury has been made easier, thanks to a new map which sets out the city’s art trail.

The map brings together art projects Re.Discover and Outside the Box in an effort to encourage residents and visitors to uncover Bunbury’s “hidden gems”.

City of Bunbury tourism, events and promotions manager Isabell Evans said the map replaced two separate guides for both projects and made it easier for street art enthusiasts.

“Following discussions with Andrew Frazer – the brainchild behind both projects – we decided to combine the two maps into one, making it easier for people,” Ms Evans said.

“Rather than having to carry two separate maps, people now have access to one handy map to help them explore the city’s street art.”

The map pinpoints more than 50 art pieces, including the 25 electrical boxes which have been transformed into whimsical characters inspired by students from Grace Christian and South Bunbury primary schools.

Eye-catching artworks such as Bradley Eastman’s mural at Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre and Tim Howe’s work at the former Good Earth Surf Shop laneway are among other impressive projects on the map.

Ms Evans said Bunbury had the biggest collection of public art in regional Australia and people should take advantage of the talent behind adding character and vibrancy to the CBD.

“Bunbury’s street art is one of the city’s many hidden gems – you could spend half a day exploring the CBD admiring these amazing works of art,” she said.

The maps are available at the Bunbury Visitor Centre and are also included in welcome packs for visitors.
