Sydney Statues: Project!
Art & About Sydney 2010

‘Sydney Statues: Project!’ re-awakened eight of Sydney CBD’s heritage statues for a contemporary audience as part of City of Sydney’s Art & About Sydney 2010. Inspired by the colourful art clothing scene of the 70s and 80s it brought textile artists and designers together spanning three decades of bold, flamboyant fashion to create clothing and accessories for the statues.
