Art for the Stanhope memorial gardens

By johnboy - 31 July 2010 24

The Canberra Times brings word (for some reason there’s been no media release, just a highly selective media event) of a $242,000 sculpture for the new arboretum.

It’s the words “Wide brown land” written in steel (brown steel mind you).

One would think we’ve moved beyond the hackneyed dross of Dorothea Mackellar’s My Country but hey, if it’s going to flutter the hearts of the oldies is a quarter million too much to pay?

What’s Your opinion?

Jesus Christ, you’d think Stanhope had become a Green sticking his mates ‘sculpture’ in amongst the trees. But to be positive, the 20 people a year who go to the arboretum might like a laugh.
