Surprise Dumplings arrive to complete ArtMoves program
12 December, 2017
Colour and light have arrived in the streets of Kingsford and Kensington as the final installation for the ArtMoves program, entitled ‘Surprise Dumplings’, was unveiled at Borrodale Road in Kingsford.
Coordinator General for Transport for NSW Marg Prendergast said the program has transformed sites along the light rail route in Kingsford and Kensington and people can now enjoy the ArtMoves story along Anzac Parade.
“Surprise Dumplings is a playful installation to complete the Art Moves program with figures of lifelike pandas, it also expresses the diversity of the local community and contributes to the Asian dining experience in the area,” Ms Prendergast said.
“Together all the installations have really given a sense of pride to the community and reflect the culture of the Kensington and Kingsford area.
“Overall we’ve had strong positive feedback for the entire project with the local community excited to see the works, particularly the heritage posts on the corner of Anzac Parade and Addison Street and the colourfulness of “The Playground” at Strachan Street.”
With the completion of Borrodale Road the local community and visitors can now walk up and down Anzac Parade and not only experience the installations but explore the culture, the people and the local businesses that make up this great and diverse area.
Randwick City Council Mayor Shurey has shown great support for the program saying that this is great for the community and will encourage visitors and the community to the area.
“Art is an excellent way to beautify a shared space and stimulate discussion within a community,” said Randwick Mayor Lindsay Shurey.
“I firmly believe that projects like ArtMoves make a vital contribution to a community’s sense of wellbeing, particularly when it explores the area’s own history and culture. I hope that people enjoy these vibrant spaces and feel a sense of pride in where they live.”
The ArtMoves installations can be found at Southern Cross Close, Borrowdale Road, Strachan Street, Addison Street and Duke Street in Kingsford and Kensington.
