Community Canvas

The Story Behind This Artwork

Artist: Akos Juhasz

Location: City Hall, 388 Kent St. 

The community canvas, now hanging in Maryborough City Hall, is the combined work of many, funded by Fraser Coast Regional Council and facilitated by professional artist Akos Juhasz in December 2017.

This mural provided an opportunity for everyone, with or without artistic skills, to create an enormous painting about love, forgiveness, respect, honor, family, peace, empathy, friendship and happiness – creating a vision for a beautiful future for our community.

Historically the City Hall is a symbol of Maryborough’s community spirit, at the heart of the city, and has stood for 110 years as an important community meeting place and a venue for social and cultural celebrations.
