Council is calling for you to tell us who in the community best represents Queanbeyan. A mural artist will interpret the winning entry in their style as a large-scale portrait mural in the Queanbeyan CBD.

This project has been made possible through a grant supplied under the community investments stream of the Australian Government’s Building Better Region’s Fund.

“This is a very significant public art project and we are asking for the community to help us select the subject matter,” Program Coordinator, Place Management Tracey Lamont said.

“Think about who it is that truly represents Queanbeyan. It could be someone from the past or the present. It could be a grandparent, a family member, a coach, or someone else you respect in the community.”

“We’d love you to share a photo of your nomination and tell us their story.”

Submit an image of the face you believe best represents Queanbeyan, along with their story. The successful mural artist will select the winning entry and will paint the face in their style.

The mural will be painted on a wall of the Bicentennial Hall, facing towards Monaro Street.
