Beach art un­veiled

Albany Advertiser - - NEWS - Jes­sica Cuth­bert

The new en­try state­ment for Mid­dle­ton Beach was un­veiled at the week­end.

For three years, the Mid­dle­ton Beach Group has been li­ais­ing with the City of Al­bany, South­ern Ports, lo­cal artists, lo­cal in­dige­nous peo­ple, and the com­mu­nity to cre­ate an artis­tic en­try state­ment for Mid­dle­ton Beach.

The new art­work sits at the cor­ner of Mid­dle­ton Road and Ade­laide Cres­cent.

Al­bany Mayor Den­nis Welling­ton re­vealed the new piece to the pub­lic on Sun­day.

The work was de­signed by Sue Codee and Sally Malone and has been de­signed as a play­ful snapshot of the beach life at Ellen Cove, in­cor­po­rat­ing el­e­ments of the site’s his­tory, com­mu­nity life and the seas­cape.

Mid­dle­ton Beach Group’s Jane Mouritz said it was a per­fect en­try and a great in­ter­pre­ta­tion of Mid­dle­ton Beach life.

“It’s re­ally good to have it com­plete,” she said,
