Locals and tourists visiting Flinders Bay in Augusta will notice a bright new addition in the area, with a row of Water Corporation grey electrical cabinets along Albany Terrace transformed into public art.

Through Water Corporation’s Splash of Colour Community Art program, everyday electrical cabinets and pump stations across the State are transformed into meaningful community art reflective of the local area and the community's connection to water.

Local artist Rebecca Cool developed the artistic design based on the town’s connection to water and the natural environment surrounding the area.

Water Corporation South West Regional Manager John Janssen said the Splash of Colour program aimed to create community identity and enhance the liveability and vibrancy of local neighbourhoods.

“It’s great to see functional and highly visible assets transformed into both striking and meaningful pieces of public art for the whole community to enjoy,” Mr Janssen said.

“I am pleased Rebecca incorporated the local marine life and lighthouse as this resonates with the town’s fishing and tourism history.”

The local community will have the opportunity get involved with art, with Water Corporation and Splash of Colour artist Rebecca Cool running a children’s art workshop at the upcoming Augusta River Festival.

Rebecca will later produce a water themed children’s book based on the designs created at the workshop.

So far, more than 40 pump stations and electrical cabinets across Western Australia have been transformed through Water Corporation’s Splash of Colour Community Art program.
