Pie Alley’s Latest Attraction
Posted on June 15th, 2015
As part of Economic Recovery activity, Capricorn Enterprise is proud to present an original piece of street art in one of Yeppoon’s most famous nightime haunts, Pie Alley.
Famous as a destination for party-goers seeking a midnight snack, Pie Alley now boasts an eye catching artwork by accomplished artists and father-and-son team Bill and Luke Gannon.
Capricorn Enterprise CEO Mary Carroll said that in the wake of Cyclone Marcia, expanding the local street art was an important project identified by community members to promote community spirit and economic recovery.
“We are fortunate to have these unique little laneways throughout the region and we wanted to celebrate both our last-century buildings and our modern-day local hotspots with a theme that would reflect the resilience and multicultural nature of our region.”
“It has been a labour of love for a whole team of people over the past three months, culminating in the big reveal on Monday.”
“It was only made possible thanks to the support of local businesses who donated time and discounted products and equipment included Keily’s Appliance and Electrical, Brett Morrison from Paint Place, Trent Cherry from TLC Painting, Flexihire, Ergon Energy and the building owner from Melbourne,” Ms Carroll said.
