The Arbour Sculpture

The Arbour Sculpture, Midland, Western Australia

Public Art: The Arbour Sculpture (AKA The Doorway)

Sculptor: © Anne Neil

Date: 2003

Description: A laser cut steel doorway which is designed to cast shadows on the ground by day and then light up like a lantern at night. It is inspired by embroidery design which is clear when you see the light casting shadows through its intricate patterns. If you stand underneath the arbour you are greeted with a warm welcome.

Location: In the Coal Dam Park next to the Woodbridge Lakes, Midland, Western Australia.

Commissioned by: Midland Redevelopment Authority

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".
