New public art

Woollahra Council has a longstanding commitment to supporting the development of public art and artistic opportunities in our local area, so it is always wonderful when we are able to add the work of local artists to our growing public art portfolio.

Artist duo Janos Korban and Stefanie Flaubert have lived locally for 27 years and I am so pleased that their generous loan contribution, sculpture Refuge, which symbolises protection, growth and propagation, has been fittingly installed on Windsor Street, Paddington, next to the Paddington Community Garden.

Find out more about Refuge and our Public Art Program, including locations for the 20 artworks currently on display throughout our LGA at Woollahra public art.
