Inge King Sculpture returns home

Renowned sculptor Inge King’s Wodonga Fountain has returned home after it was lovingly restored.

King’s work appears in collections around the world including in the National Gallery of Australia. Part of Wodonga Council’s Public Art Strategy and Master plan 2015 – 2020 is to raise awareness and appreciation of public art and its role in the city.

The sculpture was originally commissioned by the Mann family to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the family’s produce business. The family then gifted the piece of art to the city of Wodonga in 1972.

The sculpture has been returned to its place outside Arts Space Wodonga on the corner of Lawrence and Hovell streets.
