Bollards receive fresh new look

Surfers catching a wave, seagulls pinching chips and a couple walking up to the Point Moore Lighthouse are just some of the new designs to feature on bollards in the Geraldton CBD.

Earlier this year a call-out was put to local creatives for new artwork as the existing bollard designs were ending their lifecycle.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn encourages the community to check out the new street art.

“The art-covered bollards add much vibrancy to our CBD and is all part of our commitment to ensuring our city centre is engaging, progressive and unique,” he said.

“My congratulations to the creatives selected to have their artwork featured. Each design is eye-catching and individual.”

Successful artists and their works are:

  • Alice James – ‘Blue Ringed Octopus’
  • Cam Fitzgerald – ‘Chips at the Foreshore’
  • Chris Bolton and Steve Davidson – ‘Pieces of Geraldton’
  • Dongara Denison Art Group – ‘River Bush’
  • Iris Lamb – ‘Midwest Surfers’
  • Jane Barndon – ‘Tidelines’
  • Jordan Andreotta – ‘The Blue Wrens’
  • Kay McAuliffe – ‘Explore’
  • Luke Barlow – ‘Binit’
  • Marni Warren – ‘Midwest Bouquet’
  • Matthew Grigsby – ‘Mercantile Pillars’
  • Nicole Dickerson – ‘Ocean Stars’

  • Rachel Weaver – ‘My Favourite Colour Is Rainbow’
  • Ruth Lamb – ‘Chapman Valley Moresby’
  • Tahira Kelly – ‘Fairy Floss Turtle’
  • Will Upchurch – ‘Alya In The Garden’

In Memory of Meagan Plummer ‘Tuna Run’ from the 2016 Bollard Art Project has been re-installed.

The 17 new designs depict ‘Midwest Life’ and are available to view in Marine Terrace and Foreshore Drive, Geraldton.
