Each water tank mural tells a different story about the area. So much nicer than seeing a big, ugly brown tank. Wish more places would do something like this. Kudos to the amazing artist for his wonderful and inspiring work!

Was pleasantly surprised that a functional item such as a water tank could be a great canvas for art. Each water tank has a different mural.

Very appealing & clever! Instead of plain ordinary water tanks in the area, Love that these were painted. Each tells a story- either a bit of History or local attractions! See how many different ones are in this area!
