A design that is influenced by Bendigo's Chinese heritage will be featured in a new temporary public art project currently being installed on the Bendigo Town Hall. The artwork features eight, four metre long koi fish and is the design of local artist Julia DeLorenzo. Koi fish symbolise many virtues in Asian cultures. They are recognised as symbols of perseverance and endurance, as well as strength and individualism. The koi is synonymous with harmony and happiness.Bendigo has embraced public art and while this is a very different style of public art, it will add to the richness, creativity and playfulness of Bendigo. This is what public art is all about.The Installation will be finished early July and will last up to six months.
