Congratulations to Gerringong artist Michael Purdy for winning the Wollongong Acquisitive Sculpture Award 2018 for his work Steel City.

Michael Purdy

Steel City with its recycled mining equipment, telegraph poles, steel and railway spikes celebrates the industries that built the City of Wollongong, while its sandstone and stylised botanical references speak of the escarpment and its endangered rainforest communities.

Sculpture in the Garden continues until the 20 May and is open from 7am – 5pm daily. For more information see
