Sculpture by the Freeway..

 

While in West Perth a while back I came across a series of sculptures atop poles along Old Aberdeen Place, some cleverly constructed using old scrap metal pieces. Intrigued to know why I discovered it is a Sculpture by the Freeway Project.. 'an arts infrastructure project to create and install a series of sculptural plinths or ‘poles’ on Old Aberdeen Place. The plinths are designed so that sculptures can be installed and removed easily, for temporary public exhibition'. West Perth is an 'arty' area so I wasn't surprised and will go back in a few months to see what's new atop those poles :) Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  3. What fun to find and photograph these sculptures. I especially like the dragonfly. Public art is one trait of a real civilization says Lewis Mumford.
