Update on Sculpture in Rotary Park, Gosford

Date

Thursday, 14 July 2016

Release

Residents are advised that the poppy sculpture in Rotary Park, Gosford, has been moved so that inspections can be undertaken.

This week, sculptor Margrete Erling has been overseeing the removal of the artwork, so that council and the artist can check on its condition.

As the sculpture was created and installed to mark the World War 1 centenary, it was never intended to be exposed to the elements for the longer term.

Unfortunately, the piece has started to show signs of deterioration.

Council will be working with the artist to determine how it can hopefully be restored for future use, but in the meantime, please be assured that it has been stored safely.
