We have a fantastic program of public art rolling out in the shire currently, and you may have noticed the first installation at the entrance to Yanco. 

Have you wondered what it is all about? The sculpture is by artist John Wood and displays an essential tool of the architectural trade, an early 20th century styled draughting compass.The surrounding pipes arranged in Art Deco stylization are indirectly responsive to the irrigation story that helped fame Yanco from the early 1900s, dealing with the movement of water through human intervention to the land through the innovation and construction of water canals and pipes.

In coming months landscaping and interpretation works will be completed whilst we also expect the installation of four other works throughout the shire. There is a lot happening in the public art space in the shire and we are pleased to acknowledge this project is proudly funded by the NSW government.

The talk of the town though has to be the McLeod’s Daughters Reunite event at the Roxy, tickets went on sale for this July 21 event late last week and have be extremely popular.

The opportunity to get up close and personal with our favourite stars form McLeod’s daughters is too tempting – we are thrilled they have specifically asked to come to the Roxy at Leeton and hope their fans all take the chance to book in online, check out the event listing on the Leeton Roxy Community Theatre Facebook page.
