We co-funded a mural depicting early Whatley Crescent trader Mrs S Harpon painted on the wall of Mrs S Café at the corner of Whatley Crescent and Eighth Avenue in 2018. The project was a collaboration between the café, the City and Maylands art gallery Studio 28, and was painted by talented local artist Daek William.
A history of the universe, starting with the big bang and ending with Maylands as a locality, has been painted and placed on the footpath along Guildford Road.
The stroll runs between Ninth and Eighth Avenue (past the old Police Station), and the illustrations are in chronological order, spaced at distances that reflect the approximate period of time between each major event.
The project was envisioned by Rory Deegan, created by community network Creative Maylands, and funded by the City. Creative Maylands’ member Alina Tang painted the images, intended to be accessible and understandable to children as well as adults.
