Impressive artwork donated to University
An impressive artwork measuring over six metres long has found a new home in the University of Newcastle's Conservatorium.
Skyspace by Australian artist Ms Virginia Cuppaidge has been donated to the University by award-winning children's author, Ms Libby Hathorn.
University Art Curator Ms Gillean Shaw said Ms Hathorn's donation was an impressive addition to the University's art collection.
Ms Shaw said the Conservatorium's Concert Hall foyer was the ideal spot to hang the large acrylic canvas painting which was painted in New York in 1981.
Ms Hathorn, who was born in Newcastle, will return to the city to see the donated Cuppaidge work in its new home and to launch a new book later in the week.
Photo opportunity: Ms Libby Hathorn will meet with the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) Professor Kevin McConkey to view the artwork in its new home on Tuesday 29 April at 12.30pm at the University of Newcastle's Conservatorium.
