Interpretive Foreshore Signage
Council has endorsed a new signage project that will be launched as part of the Festival of Mosman in October, celebrating sites along Mosman’s foreshores that have inspired artworks by prominent artists since 1885.
Interpretive signage will be installed at the sites, providing residents and visitors with the opportunity to compare their current views with the artworks.
All the works are held in the Mosman Art Collection, which received a major donation of Australian Impressionist and modernist artworks in 2011 from the late Australian philanthropist Neil Balnaves AO.
The 12 artworks in the series range from Arthur Henry Fullwood’s ‘View from Balmoral’ (1885) to Margaret Preston’s ‘Mosman Bridge’ (1927) and Jasper Knight’s ‘Spit Bridge Tower’ (2015).
This project has been made possible with the generous support of the Balnaves Foundation
Interpretive signage will be installed around parts of Mosman thanks to the Balnaves Foundation.
