Public art unveiled on Monday
THE community is invited to next week’s unveiling of Life Amongst the Trees, a public art project funded through the Regional Arts Development Fund.
Mayor Julia Leu will officially unveil the mosaic covering the public amenities at Rex Smeal Park in Port Douglas completed as part of the RADF program, a State and Local Government partnership to support arts and culture in regional Queensland.
“Sam Matthews has devoted countless hours coordinating the project, assisted by Douglas Arts Studio Gallery tutors Connie Rossi, Ellen Terrell, Leanne Emmett, Liz Showniruk and over 100 volunteers at a number of free community workshops in 2017,” Ms Leu said.
“Feedback has been overwhelming, with visitors from all over the world taking hundreds of photos during the installation process, keen to go online to see the finished product. The unveiling will be a celebration of the community working together to create a stunning work of art for everyone to appreciate.”
The unveiling at Rex Smeal Park, is at 3.30pm Monday.
