Public art overview map

A pair of wind vanes in the shape of fish appear to swim through the air between the Tuggeranong Arts Centre and Lake Tuggeranong. One fish is cast black patinated aluminium, the other hollow form copper sheet with green patination. The work reflects life in the adjacent lake and plays on the nautical architecture of the Arts Centre building.
