Mayor of Campbelltown, George Brticevic, and Campbelltown City Council General Manager, Lindy Deitz, have today helped welcome Qantas’ 787 Dreamliner, Emily, to Alice Springs.
Emily will be part of the Qantas-Balarinji ‘flying art series’. With a team of more than 60 painters, designers and engineers, Qantas have mirrored Campbelltown Arts Centre’s permanent artwork ‘Yam Dreaming 1991’ by internationally renowned artist and Anmatyerre woman, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, on their second flying art series.
Council purchased the artwork with assistance from the Australia Council in 1995. The artwork has been exhibited locally and internationally and is a wonderfully vibrant and lively work.
The Arts Centre is excited to be able to assist launch the work into the skies to honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, and Emily.
We are incredibly proud to share 'Yam Dreaming 1991' with the entire world, as it takes to the skies.
You can also see the original artwork on exhibition at Campbelltown Arts Centre.
