A Mudge ‘treasure hunt’?

LETTER

Regarding the Art in Public Places article (November 27), Gisborne is lucky enough to possess nearly two dozen murals by the iconic, now deceased, Graeme Mudge. As far as I can see these are not appreciated enough, and may slowly disappear from the landscape if they are not preserved properly. These could be the starting point for a “treasure hunt”-type activity for visitors to the region, with a map and locations of each of these wonderful depictions of Gisborne life. Holiday-makers would love to have such an activity for the kids, as would the cruise ship visitors. Perhaps Activate Tairawhiti could become involved in such a restoration and ongoing project.
