Public Art : Kate and Sam Sculpture
Sculptor : © Kath
Date : 2002
Description : The two electroplated steel
sculptures symbolise the children of the Midland railway workshop workers. The two friends are
playing carefree in a park (pretending to fly).
Location : Yelverton Drive, Midland, Western Australia
History : The Midland Redevelopment
Authority (MRA) was appointed custodians of the Midland Railway Workshops by the State Government in 1999 and it
was the role of the authority to fund and support major permanent public art works in the area. In early 2000, Kath
Wheatley was commissioned to create a series of quirky long-legged sculptures which paid tribute to the
strong connection between the workers, family and friends of the Midland Railway Workshop.
