Glenbrook Bus Shelter Returned to its Former Glory
Remarkably, local resident artist Jayne Shepherd has painted the same mural in this location three times!
The original shelter was painted by Jayne and children from the infants school, and was destroyed by a car accident in January 2014.
When the bus shelter was destroyed Mayor Mark Greenhill came to the rescue. “When a car smashed into the original I found an old shelter at our Katoomba Depot and had our staff engage the original artist to bring it all back. A bit of history.” Mayor Mark Greenhill said.
The artwork recreates the previously existing mural which depicted scenes from much loved Australian children’s books.
Unfortunately Jayne’s work to recreate the mural in 2015 was stalled when it was discovered that the surface was unable to preserve the paintings and the bus shelter had to be stripped, resealed and coated to give the murals a more appropriate base.
Jayne began the mural for the third time in the last week of June 2016. Glenbrook Cinema staff have done a wonderful job of keeping the public informed of the progress via regular updates to their Facebook photo album.
The Mural was completed earlier this month and can be seen at the entrance to Glenbrook, outside Glenbrook Cinema on Ross Street, Glenbrook.
Thank you to Jayne Shepherd for your wonderful murals, Mayor Mark Greenhill for the discovery of the disused bus shelter, and BMCC for relocating the shelter and engaging Jayne to once again bring this beautiful feature to the Mountains.
We acknowledge and thank the staff of Glenbrook Cinema for the photos depicting the bus shelter.
