Mural Masterpiece Winners Announced

13 December 2007



Mural Masterpiece Winners Announced

Each year, Resene is approached by a wide variety of groups creating murals around New Zealand.  With most of this dedicated effort receiving only local community attention, Resene decided to recognise and celebrate this creativity with a Mural Masterpieces Competition so that we can all enjoy the works that are created, no matter where they are in New Zealand. 

Hundreds have splashed out and created mural masterpieces beautifying towns, schools and neighbourhoods all over New Zealand and entered them into the third Resene Mural Masterpieces competition.  With themes ranging from underwater scenes to history, nature to the future, selecting the winners was a difficult task.
