Cockburn Train Station’s ‘Faces of The C Perth
From the last 13 years, the controversial ‘Faces of the Community’ artwork was an integral part of the Cockburn Train Station. The two faces have, however, now been removed from the station. In a statement transport minister Rita Saffioti said that the Public Transport Authority had removed the artwork as there were some safety concerns.
The artwork was originally installed as a part of the public art project. The faces were composite of the 250 locals from the Cockburn area. The artwork cost $40,000, and now it was falling apart because of the sun damage. Ms. Saffioti said that there was a potential risk that a part of it might have fallen on to a person or a vehicle. Interestingly the people of the city said they are not going to miss it anyway.
