Children in Cardinia invited to contribute to Rix Road childcare artwork

Children from across Cardinia Shire have been invited to submit butterfly designs online for Rix Road childcare centre public artwork.

 

Contributed designs will inform a kinetic butterfly sculpture commissioned for Cardinia Shire Council’s new Rix Road Integrated Child and Family Centre. Incorporating light and movement, the design features 23 different-coloured butterflies around 60cms across, made of steel and glass and inlaid with optical film to refract colour.

 

Skunk Control, the art collective commissioned to create the artwork, specialises in engaging works that provide opportunities for discovery and delight, drawing on technology, design and art as well as their backgrounds in engineering, science and education.

 

Children have been invited to submit their ideas online using the template downloadable from our Creating Cardinia website Cardinia Shire Mayor, Counsellor Brett Owen, explained.

 

The completed butterflies will be gathered by the artist and the most popular colour scheme proposed will be used for the art installation.

 

For more information and to download a butterfly template, visit the Council’s website or call the Cardinia Cultural Centre team on 1300 787 624.
