Projects: Sound Shell Mural
The Man from Snowy River Tourist Association commissioned Franco Arcidiacono for the Corryong sound shell mural project. The mural is in Corryong's Attree Park.
Although Franco lives in Stanthorpe, Queensland, he has visited the Upper Murray many times over the years.
Artist Franco was extremely excited when he was asked to produce the mural. He used black and white tones as the basis of his artwork. This was primarily done for artistic reasons. Also the black and white images will blend into the background when the sound shell is used for performances.
The mural depicts typical Upper Murray scenery. It shows the Murray River, mountains and river red gums. As well as this the general farm scenery is typical of the Upper Murray region.
Franco and his wife Moreno spent 3 weeks in March 2018 painting the mural onto the Sound Shell wall.
