Painting mall poles
An idea, re the repainting of the poles in Devonport’s mall. Invite some indigenous artists to apply their skills and do some incredible work on these poles, a link could be done to encourage people to visit Tiagarra.
We have fine artists the likes of Wayne Edwards and Bill Flowers, maybe they could be encouraged to apply their brilliance to some of these poles.
We could do a “where’s Wally” theme or paint a pole so everyone could measure their height. Perhaps some talented kids could make their mark on a pole or two.
It’s a novel concept which would gain positive comments by locals and visitors. There’s so many ideas and opportunities going begging. All it needs is some vision and imagination to really make this mall a showpiece. If not then re-open it to vehicles once again.
