Public Art : Shovels Sculpture
Sculptor : © Anne Neil
Description: A series of seven cast bronze shovels in
a ornamental vegetable garden.
Location : In a vegetable patch near
Coal Dam Park, Midland, Western Australia.
History: The Coal Dam Park was established as part of
the Midland Redevelopment Authority initiative. As part of the program the Authority commissioned various artists
to create public art that would reflect the history and growth of the area. Anne Neil has three sculptures
represented in Coal Dam Park, The Arbour, Shovels and the Animals sculptures which are all inspired by the theme of "nesting". The Shovels
Sculpture features a set of seven cast bronze shovels placed in a vegetable garden (which is tended by the
children of the local primary school). The shovels represent the nurturing and future growth of the area.
