Wingecarribee Shire Council is inviting all interested community members to attend a free workshop on public art.

The seminar, entitled “The Winds of Change Workshop – how does public art happen?” will explore the process and challenges of designing, making and installing the recently unveiled Winds of Change public art project on Moss Vale Road in Burradoo.

“Council has received a lot of positive feedback from the community since we commissioned the Winds of Change,” said Council’s Cultural Development Officer, Jenny Kena.

“We’ve subsequently secured the artist responsible for the design – Jane Cavanough of Artlandish Art and Design in Bundanoon – to host a one-off public workshop to explain how she went about designing and erecting the Shire’s latest landmark.”

The Winds of Change sculpture was commissioned as part of Moss Vale and Bowral’s Sesquicentenary anniversary celebrations.

The free workshop will be held in the Gibraltar Room in Council’s Civic Centre, Elizabeth Street, Moss Vale on Tuesday 27 August 2013 from 5pm to 7.30pm.

“This workshop is a unique insight into the creative processes involved in designing a public art project,” said Ms Kena. “I’m sure aspiring artists, committee members and anyone interested in public art would be fascinated by the talk.”

The Winds of Change Workshop is free to attend but RSVP’s are essential. Light refreshments will be served.
