Headlie Taylor Sculpture Unveiling

Event date: 12/09/2018 Export event

On Wednesday, 12th September, 2018 a larger than life bronze sculpture of Headlie Taylor will be unveiled at 2:00pm, in Henty’s Bicentennial Park on the Olympic Highway.

The unveiling will recognise the world  renowned invention of a ground driven header which revolutionised grain harvesting, over 100 years ago in Henty.
 
The commissioned artist/sculptor, Paul Smits, will travel from Melbourne to witness his work unveiled in the presence of interested locals, family members, donors, councillors and visitors from across Australia.
 
Everyone is welcome to attend.
 
Former member for Farrer and Nationals Leader Tim Fischer AC has accepted an invitation to be the guest speaker.
Several local organisations have willingly contributed to support the event, as well as, Murray Arts, Greater Hume Council, HMFD Committee, Bendigo Bank and both primary schools.
 
The following day artist Paul Smits will demonstrate and explain the finer points of the sculpture process. This will be a free workshop for interested adults to be held in the Henty Lifestyle Centre from 9:00am, providing a rare opportunity for participants to experience the creative process.
 
Save the date, be part of history on September 12th at 2:00pm and join family members and interested visitors as Public Art, History, Agriculture and Engineering combine to celebrate the invention.
 
The Header Museum is a proud destination on Greater Hume Council’s Tourist Trail.
