TOOWOOMBA ART GALLERY PARK
When walking Ruthven Street, I came across the Art Gallery and Art Gallery park.
The park is only small, has some seating, and a lot of Aboriginal sculptures.
How it came about................
Some Landscape Architect's teamed up with an artist and ironworker who had obtained a group of unemployed aboriginal men as part of a small budget work training grant.
The fifteen young aboriginal men were taught ironmongery. They went to work and made a series of totems representing their individual dreams and visions, and now I could view them in the park.
