Roberts Street gets an historic facelift
The side of the Crookwell Visitor Information Centre is being refreshed with a new mural by local artist Cullen Ball. Cullen has created a design that speaks to the history of Crookwell and the bygone era of the steam trains that were an important part of the areas history. Locals might recognise elements of the design from a previous indoor mural at a local retailer that has since been painted over. People missed it so much Cullen relished the chance to bring it back to life on the much larger outdoor space.
Listen to Cullen talk about the mural and his arts practice on SoundCloud.
The new mural by Cullen Ball is on the corner of Roberts and Goulburn Streets Crookwell. The inspiration came from a previous mural much missed by locals. Check out more of Cullen’s work at his facebook page.
