Gateway to MAC

THE new Moonah Arts Centre (MAC) has recently installed a major public artwork – a large gate across the courtyard designed by artist Michael Schlitz.

Mr Schlitz is well known for his distinctive woodcut prints, and it is from one of these that the final design for the gate was developed.

The gate is fabricated from COR-TEN steel and is 7.5 metres long by 2.3 metres high.

Within the detail of the work a figure amongst trees, “at one with nature,” can be seen.

The fabrication was undertaken by local Moonah company Dynamic Welding & Engineering that experimented with techniques to create the final product.

It is expected that the gate will become an iconic feature of the Moonah landscape and a defining image for the new Arts Centre.
