DORRIGO TOWN CENTRE
ARTIST: STUART GREEN
CLIENT: PRIVATE COLLECTOR
A large-scale public artwork is being proposed for the main street of Dorrigo, a town of approximately 1000 residents in the Bellingen Shire, NSW. Dorrigo sits 731 metres above sea level and is known for its world heritage listed national park and waterfalls.
The project is being funded by a local philanthropist and long-time resident who is passionate about revitalising the town centre and promoting cultural tourism. Creative Road have been engaged to oversee all aspects of the project through to practical completion.
Three professional public artists – Belinda Smith, Braddon Snape and Stuart Green - developed concepts for a large-scale, eye-catching contemporary sculpture referencing Dorrigo's natural environment. The selection panel which comprised Dorrigo residents, artists and Bellingen Shire’s mayor - selected Stuart Green's Water Cloud.
