New designs for Rhino sculptures unveiled

Dubbo Regional Council Administrator Michael Kneipp has unveiled the winning designs in the Rhino sculpture competition.

The competition was open to high school students and gave them the chance to have their artwork displayed on one of the four rhino sculptures located at the entrances to Dubbo.

The four winners Jessica Betts, Will Hazzard, Belle Lordan and Zoe Monaro were at the unveiling.

“The rhino sculptures at the entrances to Dubbo are the perfect way to showcase the superb talent of our young residents,” Council Administrator Michael Kneipp said.

“The work these students have produced, under the guidance of artist Jack Randell, is fantastic.”

“The unveiling of this sculptures just days before the beginning of the Artlands Conference is perfect timing as it gives delegates arriving for Artlands a taste of the depth of artistic talent we have here in Dubbo.”

“It was a pleasure to have NSW Regional Arts CEO Elizabeth Rogers at the unveiling to talk about the importance of artistic endeavours such as this.

“The rhino sculptures first came to Dubbo as part of the Rhino Adventure campaign and are now an iconic representation of the region.”
