Marking George Town
Marking George Town started off as a competition initiated by the Penang State Government to physically brand George Town as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On 7 September 2009, an international competition was aimed at exploring innovative ideas in art and design for public spaces in George Town. Out of the 40 entries within the country and from abroad, Sculptureatwork triumphed with its design concept of ‘voices from the people’. Subsequently, 52 unique and humorous illustrations in the form of iron rod sculptures were installed against the city’s building walls.
