Youth Council muralIn 2014 Yass Valley Youth Council produced a design for a mural to  be painted on the wall of the amenities building at Jones Park in Murrumbateman.  The image was designed to depict the many aspects of Murrumbateman.  On Tuesday 12th January various  youth from around the Yass Valley gathered at the amenities wall at Jones Park and turned this design into a reality with an array of different coloured spray paints.
Organiser Cathy Campbell from the Yass Valley Council said it was a chance for the youth to create something special that will be around for years to come.
“It’s a great way to improve the look of the area and depicts what the youth view as important in the local area. The kids have shown that they value many of the things that represent Murrumbateman,” she said.
The mural was made possible with a grant from the Country Artists Support Projects.  Local artist, Emma Holberton oversaw the project and helped members of the Youth Council to design the mural and was there on the day of painting to help make it a reality.  YASSarts would encourage residents of the Yass Valley and beyond to get along and  view the project.
