Easter Surprise: Council Maintains Standard of Decorations with Egg Hunt Installation in Stawell

A talented group of students from four local primary schools have created an artistic Easter Egg Hunt installation in Stawell, with 18 collaborative works to be displayed in central locations around town for the duration of the Easter holidays.

Northern Grampians Shire Council approached Concongella, St Patrick’s, Stawell West and Stawell 502 Primary Schools, with the idea for the interactive installation, providing the fiberglass eggs and paint, with students given artistic licence to create their own works of art.

Looking to maintain the high standard of decorations established by the council at the end of last year, Northern Grampians Shire Council Mayor, Cr Rob Haswell, instigated the creative initiative alongside CEO, Brent McAlister, in response to positive community feedback regarding the decorations installed over Christmas.

“We were looking for a new way to create a celebratory atmosphere in town and thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to encourage young artists in the community to develop creative confidence. Our Economic Development Team has been working hard behind the scenes to engage with different community groups, support artistic enterprise and encourage community-focused initiatives and I thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to showcase the creative talents of the young people in our community at a time when there is an influx of tourists to the town,” said Cr Haswell.

“This art installation is about friends, family, and fun. An interactive creative installation that will encourage people to get out and about in town and enjoy the holidays. The students have done such a fantastic job - the town looks amazing, and I couldn’t be more proud,” added Cr Haswell.

The Easter Egg Installation works are on display in Main Street, Cato Park, Central Park, and the Coffee Palace Park, with four of the eggs painted gold to add to the fun. Start your hunt with a photo at the photo frame and Big Bunny at Coffee Palace Park. Can you find them all?
