Get It On! a wall

Tue 24 Apr 2012 In: Entertainment View at Wayback View at NDHA

Get It On! is taking its message to the streets with a series of murals in the nation’s biggest cities sharing the pro-condom message. Five murals are being painted; three in Auckland, one in Wellington and one in Christchurch. They are being funded by the National Lotteries Commission and painted by professional mural artist Disruptiv, along with any volunteers who would like to take part. The first mural has been completed on hoardings next to a massive building site on the Richmond Rd and Ponsonby Rd intersection. “Big thanks to Davies Investments for generously allowing us to use this space. Once construction is complete at the site and the hoarding needs to come down, the mural is designed to be able to be moved and re-erected at a new site,” says Get It On! spokesman Daemon Coyle. “A second Auckland mural will be completed this weekend and will be located behind the Urge Bar. This one will also feature artwork from renowned local graphic artist Don Chooi,” Coyle says. “And again, thanks to Urge and the Samson Corporation for allowing us to use this wall. There will be a barbeque on Sunday from midday for those who are picking up a brush/can, or if you want to just come down and take a look.” Get It On! is still looking for wall space in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland, so if anyone has a wall they could provide, or know someone who might, please let the team know.
