A step by step snapshot of Emerald’s history is situated in Morton Park, Emerald. This project was made possible by Centenary of Federation funding. The mosaic pathway depicts 100 years of Emerald’s history with 21 intricately tiled designs. The detailed mosaics were created by 10 of Emerald’s local artists.
At the end of the mosaic pathway is the Big Easel installation art piece, created by Canadian artist, Cameron Cross. Erected in 1999, the artwork depicts Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh’s famous Sunflowers painting. Weighing approximately 17,000 kilograms, the steel easel measures 25 metres in height, with the canvas measuring 7 x 10 metres.
