About the Artist

Community research and engagement is essential when creating public art, as it should represent the area and those working/living in it. This is where YOU come in. We want to be sure that all groups have a voice in what the artwork reads and evokes. Please submit your feedback via the form below.
We've received some great feedback from the community already. The most common themes encountered have been HISTORY, DIVERSITY, EDUCATION and NATURE. Let us know if any of these resonate with you or if you have new themes to suggest.
Consider how themes and subject matter can be represented visually. Do you prefer bold imagery or something more subtle? What color palette would you like to see? Are there specific symbols or iconography you'd like to see included. Let us know.
Let your voice be heard!
