ST ARNAUD HISTORY MOSAIC

Mosaic is a creative form of art which uses small pieces of coloured tiles, stone or glass, usually linked to a picture or pattern which tells a story.

 

The St Arnaud History Mosaic is a series of mosaic panels which link together into a 10 metre long artwork detailing the history and community of St Arnaud. Sally Wright oversaw the artistic side of the project.

The first three metres consist of the town's indigenous history, and displays mosaic tiled images of native plants and animals, and the creek that runs underneath the shops in the main street. Consultations with local indigenous people were invaluable, as was the loan of a first edition book detailing the history of the Dja Dja Wurrung clan.

The second section of the mosaic was completed with students from the St Arnaud Secondary College spending time out from their classes to put together the next group of historical facts relevant to the town's history. Some of the students from the college spent Term 1 and part of Term 2 interviewing long term residents and transcribing the interviews. We thank all who gave their valuable time to speak with the students and contribute to the project.
