Greta goes

By Simon Ruppert

The painting of Greta Thunberg which welcomes visitors to Benalla is being removed.

The image, a trigger to some, an inspiration to others, was always a temporary installation - painted as part of the Window to Window Festival.

Whether you love it or hate it's difficult to deny that it has created a lot of attention.

The image was kept about a week longer than originally anticipated following a graffiti attack, however council are now removing it.

There was a community effort to save the painting with the Benalla Sustainable Future group lobbying council to keep it up - however their efforts were in vain.
