Mornington Peninsula Shire has contracted local arts Simon White to create a public artwork for the wall of Terry White Chemist on High Street depicting the maritime history of Western Port Bay.final-design

Simon is best known on the Peninsula for his mural of the original Red Hill Railway line, at the entrance to The Epicurean restaurant. Simon’s design for the mural was created in collaboration with students from Western Port Secondary College and inspired by a selection of images from the collection of the Hastings & Western Port Historical Society. 

Interested members of the community wishing to assist the artist are encouraged to email artsandculture@mornpen.vic.gov.au for more information.

The mural should be completed before Christmas and a celebratory launch and sausage sizzle will be held in early 2017.
