The artwork installed in the shop laneway between the Bay Espresso cafē and the BNZ bank in Gloucester Street, Taradale was designed by Jacob Scott in association with Ricks Terstappen.
The main artwork on the BNZ wall is about Taradale and captures some of the significant features from the vineyards, farms and animals, the winding Tutaekuri River, the rolling hills behind Taradale, Otatara Pa site, the shopping centre and businesses.
The laneway was widened to connect the main street and Lee Road to encourage better access and interaction for visitors to the shopping centre as part of the Taradale Town Centre redevelopment plan with Council and the Taradale community.
The artwork was completed by the end of 2007 and cost about $10,000. This also included the two seats, lighting and the paving and lights in the laneway.
