It’s the end of an era.
The old 7th Avenue bridge that has served the Maylands community faithfully since 1913 will be demolished in May, to be replaced with a new bridge that will offer all the functionality of the old one (plus some extras like a better footpath/cycleway) but without the personality of the old one.
A significant public artwork is being commissioned alongside the redevelopment of the bridge to embody a memory of the site. The briefing for shortlisted artists is taking place tomorrow and Creative Maylands has a chance to contribute information to the public artwork briefing process.
People seem to have a fondness for the old 7th Avenue bridge.
It’s a repository for many memories, among older people and young people alike.
It’s a Maylands icon.
We want to give you a chance to tell us what the 7th Avenue bridge means to you. We’ll collate all the responses we receive and pass them on to the shortlisted artists as part of the briefing process. It will then be up to the artists as to how they make use of the information we provide.
You’ve got just 24 hours to put some thoughts to screen.
Tell us in 3 words of less.
Or a short paragraph if you’ve got more to share.
Thoughts welcome until 10am Wednesday 26th March 2014.
