Art Program Enlives Shellharbour City Bus Shelters

New artwork has been installed in bus shelters across Shellharbour, as part of Shellharbour City Council’s Art in Unexpected Places program.

The Art in Unexpected Spaces program features a new artist quarterly to provide ongoing opportunities for artists, as well as display visual delights for visitors and locals to connect with.

The featured artworks are by Trawlwoolway artist Edwina Green. Edwina’s practice is informed by her connection to culture and ties to reclaiming intergenerational disconnection.

Artworks from Edwina’s ‘Badary’ series (meaning ‘little ones’), are designed to engage children. The artworks explore a playful connection to kin and the elements necessary for a strong cultural bond (learn, listen, yarn, play).

Other works displayed explore the diversity and complexity of language groups across our country.

Shellharbour City Council Mayor Chris Homer encouraged community members to keep an eye out for the new artworks.

“The Art in Unexpected Places program not only provides fresh pops of colour and small moments of joy in places across the city that may not be expected, but it also provides exciting opportunities for artists to showcase their work,” Mayor Homer said.
