Public Art : Three Friends Sculpture (Cyril, Wilson
Sculptor : © Kath
Date : 2002
Description : Three galvanised steel
sculptures symbolising retired railway workshop workers. The three friends go by the names Wilson,
Cyril and Renaldo, reflecting the diverse ethnicity of the people working in the workshops. Each sculpture has a
different pose and each sculpture has different articles of clothing e.g. cap, hat and tie. They all feature
elongated legs and arms.
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.
