Walking the Road – the start of Public Art

Statue at Sea Point promenade
Marieke Prinsloo-Rowe, a Fine Arts Masters student, is the lady responsible for the series of sculptures recently erected on the Sea Point Promenade. This sculpture is one of 18 that will be on display until June 2011, and which form part of a project to help establish a better Public Art Policy for the City of Cape Town.

This sculpture of a young girl represents "a young South African democracy", full of hope and promise. Read more about the project and the other sculptures in the Walking the Road display on Marieke's website.

    Interesting and it’s good to see that they’ll still be there when we come out next year.

    We’ll be able to go over that side again, have coffee & scones at the Winchester Mansions and see the sculptures and hopefully get some good photo’s like this one is of your Paul..:)

    Thanks Bev, and yes, that’s exactly what we did. Winchester and the sculpture walk. :) Sorry about the terrible way in which England exited the World Cup. That really was a slaughter. I believe that there’s a group of guys waiting for someone to pack their bags… interested?

    Paul, you know, that’s not a bad idea at all. Perhaps we will, and hey, perhaps Leapfrog will sponsor it. :D I’d say that we’d wait until better picnic weather, but hell, today was awesome weather for a picnic!

    Paul I think there were a few hundred thousand folk who would have rushed over and packed there bags for them – overpaid group of men that need to get their act together and very quickly, and as for their Manager well least said the better!!

    So pleased you like the Winchester Mansions – have you done a Sunday morning breakfast there?

    It is hey Deepak – thanks for visiting CTDP! :)

    Bev, oh well, forget about them now. Who do you support next?
    Yes, Winchester Mansions is awesome, and no we haven’t tried the breakfast. Perhaps we should do that when you’re back here again? :)
