Walsh Bay Sculpture Walk
In 2008 Transfield Holdings augmented the cultural landscape of the Walsh Bay Precinct with the launch of the Walsh Bay Sculpture Walk, an outdoor exhibition of works from The Transfield Art Collection.
The Walsh Bay Sculpture Walk features Still Life with Stone and Car by American artist Jimmie Durham. This work was conceived as a piece of kinetic performance, with the crushing of ‘The Car’ staged on the Sydney Opera House forecourt as part of the 2004 Biennale of Sydney. Durham’s work now sits on the Pottinger Street roundabout between two ‘Artwork Ahead’ road sign representations by Richard Tipping.
The Three Sisters triptych by Gordon Andrews, designer of Australia’s first decimal currency banknotes, stands henge-like in Pottinger Park. Linda Bowden’s Into the Trees ll, Ron Robertson-Swann’s Transnewfield, Michael Snape’s The Change, and Diego Latella’s Red, White and Blue are all displayed at Pier 8/9 as is Phil Price’s kinetic work, Tri.
