Our thanks to Wodonga Council for delivering a great public art project on the railway siding at Bonegilla; Seven Cases by Yvonne George.
As explained in the Bonegilla Migrant Experience newsletter:
Seven Cases pays respect to the more than 300,000 migrants who passed through the doors of the Bonegilla Migrant Reception and Training Centre between 1947 and 1971. The cases are made from 5mm mild steel and individually embellished. The sculpture is located at the Bonegilla Rail Siding, Murray Valley Highway.
To access the rail siding, walk or ride along the High Country Rail Trail. The closest road access point to the rail trail is at Mahers Rd, Bonegilla to the east.
Listen to artist Yvonne George as she tells of her experience of developing the artworks and the meaning behind them.
