Dolphin-etched-into-concrete

Artwork depicting the Arakwal Bundjalung connection to country has been sand-blasted into concrete as part of a new public art installation at Railway Park in Byron Bay.

Five Arakwal Bundjalung artists have created 11 artworks that are now featured in exposed concrete in the footpaths on the western side of the park.

“This is one of the biggest public artworks that Arakwal has been involved with, and it is extremely special to have it featured in the centre of Byron Bay,” lead artist Nickolla Clark, said.

“To see our beautiful designs that we drew by hand now permanently featured in Railway Park is so rewarding for all of us,” Ms Clark said.
