After years of planning the Glen Innes Pottery Club has begun putting up a mural.

The artwork, which is located on the corner of Bourke and Grey Street, has been a collaborative process by various members of the community, Max Powell from the Pottery Club said.

“We’ve involved all the local and district schools,” he said.

The project, which was funded by council, has been in progress for about two years.

“Last year was the main period of working with different groups to get the panels ready,” he said.

Nicci Parry-Jones said she hoped that council would make public art an important item on the agenda into the future.

“It enriches the town and adds to the appeal of Glen Innes as a tourist destination,” Ms Parry-Jones said.
