Residents of Kings Cross, Potts Point, Elizabeth Bay, Rushcutters Bay and Woolloomooloo
As recently reported in City News, the City of Sydney has removed part of an art installation at a park on the corner of Ward Ave and Roslyn St, Kings Cross.
Locals were appalled by this, and the 2011 Residents Association sent the following letter to the City of Sydney Lord Mayor, Councillors and CEO asking for an explanation and calling on Council to reinstall the artwork.
Dear Lord Mayor,
Kings Cross locals were appalled that Council effectively destroyed the art installation in the park at the corner of Roslyn St and Ward Ave, Kings Cross.
Many people loved the art – it was perfect for the area. But removing part of it has resulted in bland yellow walls instead of the vibrant portraits that had briefly adorned the wall. What was the reason for Council’s actions?
Council should reinstall the art installation as soon as possible.
