This morning I visited Marrickville High School to congratulate staff and students alike on their successful application to have the next stage of the school’s public art installation funded.
The installation, a continuous rainbow wave that will wrap around the entire school, was designed by local artist Nuha Saad.
The crossed lines and colour represent the lives of Marrickville High School students as they grow and change into adults.
I was pleased to have been able to deliver $20,000 through the Stronger Communities Programme to fund the installation
The artwork has visually transformed the outside of the school, while on the inside the students are working on inspired projects of their own, with visual arts teacher Jemima Hall.
I wish the school all the best for the next stage of the installation.
