A NEW public art sculpture, Shellpod, has been installed by Wollongong City Council at Sharkeys Beach, Coledale.
The sculpture is from the Wombarra artist, Gaby Porter and was created by Gaby and a number of local artists including Annette Wellings, Lois Hill, John Haymes and Alan Wetten.
Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery said it will become one of the landmarks in the northern villages.
“We thank Gaby and the other Shellpod artists for sharing their art,” he said.
“This work shows how public art can inspire and engage people in cultural experiences. Council is truly grateful for this act of generosity from the sculptors.”
Sharkeys Beach is a popular surfing and swimming beach and the Shellpod – gifted to the community and Council – sits adjacent to the southern end of the car park.
