7 February, 2020 –
Ferny Grove line commuters have two new murals to admire with the installation of local wildlife-inspired artworks at Alderley and Mitchelton stations by renowned Sunshine Coast artist, Fuzeillear.
These murals are part of Queensland Rail’s Positive pARTnership program, which engages talented artists to transform once plain spaces – including station walls and overbridges –into focal points for the community.
The new murals at Alderley and Mitchelton stations do exactly that, and it’s been fantastic to see the local communities’ reaction to the beautiful designs – a stunning representation of the flora and fauna our beautiful state has to offer.
Fuzeillear said she enjoyed the opportunity to work with Queensland Rail and share her art with the local community –
“I relish public art; I see it as an opportunity to connect with individuals and communities, especially through the conversations and research I undertake before beginning any project.”
Customers at Alderley station will be able to see the artwork on the communications hut when travelling inbound from the station, while customers at Mitchelton can view the artwork on two corridor huts, entering the station carpark from Kedron Avenue and on the structure past the Osbourne Road level crossing.
So far the Positive pARTnership program has delivered 155 projects across 89 locations, covering more than 26,000 square metres of the QR network.
