A NEW sculpture is being installed on the foreshore at Hazel Pierce Reserve in Mordialloc.
Artist Deb McNaughton has been working on the project. In 2020 McNaughton painted the mural A Rainbow of Hope at the Shirley Burke Theatre in Parkdale.
The sculpture also takes the form of a rainbow and stretches over the footpath below.
Kingston Council undertook community consultation on the project in 2020. Council says that “the survey results reflected an overwhelmingly positive response to the Raindrops and Sunbeams sculpture design and its timely focus on the hope and connection experienced in the Kingston community during the challenges of COVID-19.”
Council’s Indigenous Portfolio Officer consulted on the project, as did local primary school students.
