Eastern Riverina Arts welcomes the decision by Wagga Wagga City Council to ensure the Jason Wing mural will remain for at least another 4 years.
Wagga Wagga City Council should be applauded for listening to the community and acting swiftly to protect this great artwork.
Thanks to everyone who signed the petition and made such great thoughtful comments.
from the Wagga Wagga City Council media release:
Jason Wing is the artist behind the street art mural on Fitzmaurice St scheduled to be destroyed next week. Eastern Riverina Arts fears the painting over of the artwork will be a grave error and an insult to a significant award-winning NSW Aboriginal Artist.
