An ideal opportunity to present a poster providing the story behind the murals hanging in the DP Jones Nursing Home was at the Annual General Meeting of Murchison Community Care in October. Some other murals are also hanging in the Murchison Community Centre by the same artist, Hans Wolter von Gruenewaldt. People often ask what is the story behind these works of art? Von Gruenewaldt was a German POW in Camp 13 during the Second World War. He was asked to decorate the Recreation Hall at the Camp and painted humorous caricatures on the walls. When the Hall was being demolished, the paintings were saved by cutting them out of the lining of the walls, framed and are now hanging in our town. So, this poster gives an explanation of how the murals came about and will inform anyone curious as to their origin and particularly how they came to be hanging in DP Jones Nursing Home. The poster was produced by Murchison & District Historical Society and a copy is also hanging in the Heritage Centre. You can visit the Heritage Centre any Saturday morning to discuss obtaining a copy if you would like one yourself.
