Cardinia children invited to contribute to Rix Road daycare artwork


Children everywhere Cardinia County were invited to submit butterfly designs online for public art work at Rix Road Daycare.

Designs provided will illuminate a kinetic butterfly sculpture commissioned for the new Cardinia Shire Council Rix Road Integrated Center for Children and Families. Incorporating light and movement, the design features 23 different colored butterflies approximately two feet in diameter, made of steel and glass and encrusted with an optical film to refract color.

Skunk control, the artistic collective responsible for creating the work of art, specializes in engaging works that offer opportunities for discovery and pleasure, drawing on technology, design and art as well as their training in engineering, science and education.

Children were invited to submit their ideas online using the template downloadable from our Creation of Cardinia Website Mayor Cardinia Shire, Councilor Brett Owen, explained.

The completed butterflies will be collected by the artist and the most popular color palette offered will be used for the art installation.
