New sculptures at Lawson Park

Next time you visit Mudgee’s Lawson Park you’ll get the chance to see the three new sculptures that have been installed along the Lawson Park Sculpture Walks as part of the park’s growing public collection.

Lawson Park’s sculptural works have been curated over a number of years as part of a partnership between the Mid-Western Regional Council and the annual Sculptures in the Garden event.

The first of the new sculptures is named Turbulent and is by Leeton artist Tobias Bennett and was the Sculptures in the Garden 2017 Moolarben Acquisition.A second piece, Gathering, is by Victorian based blacksmith Simon Pankhurst and is a reflection of people gathering in different ways.

The last of the new sculptures, Town, by Paul Bacon, was awarded the 2017 Friends of Sculptures in the Garden Prize.

Lawson Park’s sculptures are a great example of the cultural diversity that can be found in the Mudgee region and the walk makes for a great way to spend a day out.
