Background to mural creation:
The mural was created to encourage people to visit the town as a new bypass has been completed. This is the first in a series of murals that is being created.

When the $92.3 million Perth bypass build started, resident Rosalie Wrigley started to worry about the effect on the town’s local businesses. She was concerned that something needed to be done to persuade motorists to turn off the new highway and drive into the town for a while.

She decided that what Perth needed was murals. She’d seen them on buildings, old towers and silos and thought they were beautiful. They are bright and make you feel good. So Rosalie rounded up a team of ‘talented friends’ to paint the murals and approached the Northern Midlands Council for support – who thought it was a wonderful idea.
