My Tag My Town 2011

Community Gallery November 10th - 22nd 2011

My Tag My Town is an exhibition of school mural designs as part of a three-year initiative by Matamata-Piako District Council, encouraging young students to have increased respect for their town environment. The initiative involved students from age 8-12 and in this final year of the project 9 schools from around the District created murals in their schools, on 1200mm x 1200mm boards provided by Alpha Media Productions. The entries were judged by three independent judges and school painting packs donated by resene were handed out at the opening preview to the winners.
Local graffiti artist Alex (who did an amazing job on the Te Aroha skatepark) will be compiling ideas from the winning designs to create big murals around the District's 3 main towns.

1st Prize ($500 pack) Tahuna School
2nd Prize ($300 pack) Te Poi School
3rd Prize ($150 pack) Tatuanui School

Mishmash from TV Central gave a wonderful performance to entertain the crowds at the preview and there was much laughter during the children's games!

thanks to Resene for sponsoring the event.
