Mahara low mural

Just outside the Sunday Cantina café.  This is looking west and shows the sunflowers now in bloom.

On the opposite side (behind the camera) an area has been painted lime green in readiness for another mural.  Sue Lusk of Destination Waikanae says: “[artist] Abby found it very hard on her back and knees and we wondered about marine ply panels for this one (which would be good if the planters are eventually demolished).”

Like the sculpture garden, there seems no good reason for demolishing the flower planters. The open area really only requires relatively small expenditure to improve it.

It is more important to spend the allocated money instead on expanding the Mahara Gallery building by adding a second story.
