Public Artwork for Headlie Taylor Header Museum in Henty
Henty is known as the Home of the Header and Headlie Taylor is one of Australia’s greatest inventors in the field of agricultural machinery. In recognition of Headlie Taylor and his Header Harvester, a significant public artwork is being commissioned by the Greater Hume Shire Council, in partnership with the Headlie Taylor Header Museum and Murray Arts.
The public artwork will be positioned in front of the Headlie Taylor Header Museum, located within the Henty Bicentennial Park. The proposed artwork will need to respond to the recognition of Headlie Taylor and his invention. Henty is known as the Home of the Header and it is fitting and proper that the story and legend is enhanced in the sculpture.
Local agricultural engineer, Headlie Taylor, a farmer’s son, who left school at the age of 14, developed and designed the Header Harvester which laid the foundation for mechanical harvesting of grain adopted in Australia and throughout the world.
Depending on materials proposed and size of the public artwork, the budget for the successful sculpture will be between $20,000 - $85,000 (GST excluded).
