THIS time last year there it was announced that an artwork would be commissioned to remember the work of Henty’s Headlie Taylor.
At the time the story read, philanthropic contributions mean that artwork could be to the value of $85,000.
The public artwork is being commissioned by the Greater Hume Shire Council, in partnership with the Headlie Taylor Header Museum and Murray Arts and the organisations are calling for expressions of interest before July 31. After years of planning, the Headlie Taylor Header Museum secured funds from various philanthropic and Government sources to commemorate local engineer, and recognise his historical contribution to agriculture.
The Greater Hume Shire Council, in partnership with the Headlie Taylor Header Museum and Murray Arts, proposes to commission a significant public artwork in front of the Headlie Taylor Header Museum, located within the Henty Bicentennial Park. “I just love the story, spirit and determination behind this commission,” said executive director of Murray Arts, Alyce Fisher.
