Public Art – ‘My Dearest’
"My Dearest", otherwise known as the giant cup and ball is located in Calembeen Park, Creswick and was completed in late 2016.
It is made from concrete and polyurethane by artist, Mark Cuthbertson. The work resembles a cup and ball child's toy. "My Dearest" references the hardship and loss within families of the gold rush era. The artwork is a symbolic gesture of a sentimental item or cherished keep sake to provoke ideas of connection, loss and memories of the past.
