A DRAB laneway in Woonona has been given a facelift with the installation of public artwork.
Wollongong City Council — in conjunction with local artists — has instigated the public art work in Haddon Lane.
Council’s manager community cultural and economic development, Sue Savage said the large artwork of the local Mistletoe Bird is part of a public art program which aims to create interesting and evocative spaces in public areas.
A second installation, “clinker boats”, has been placed on the shores of Lake Illawarra in Holborn Park, Berkeley.
“These works will help to inspire local residents as well as enhance the laneway in Woonona,” Ms Savage said.
“Council and the local communities have been working with the artists, Col Henry and Kane Horspool [Trait], on the design and placement of their works. The work in the laneway will help to make this area vibrant with a contemporary work showing a local wildlife.”
