Ms Dymond’s artwork Getting Air won out over other pieces in the Future Generation Public Art Exhibition held at the Memorial Hall in Hamilton Hill.

The City plans to place the commissioned piece at the entrance of the Market Garden Swamp skate park when it is redeveloped into a regional skate facility.

The art piece will be made of steel and painted skateboard decks and is kinetic, drawing movement from the wind to generate light.

Mayor Logan Howlett said the piece would provide interest to the skate park entry.

‘Not only will it engage the community and get youth involved in building the sculpture and actively being part of the process to revamp the skate park, but also show how a piece of artwork will provide a source of renewable energy,’ he said.
