As part of the works to upgrade the Passenger Terminal at Outer Harbor, Flinders Ports engaged a professional art restorer to clean and restore the mural that was created by local Adelaide Artist, Dr. Thomas Gleghorn (OAM), that was installed in the terminal in 1973. Looking brand new, the mural is a colourful welcome for our visitors to Adelaide during the cruise ship season. Dr. Gleghorn recently visited the terminal and was very happy with the restoration and was thrilled that it was still on display in the terminal.
As part of the visit we created a video about the mural, ‘Landscape & Coast’ and this features an interview with Dr. Gleghorn about what inspired the work and his approach to creating it. It was an amazing experience to listen to him and to see the revitalised work.
I would like to thank Flinders Ports for their support in creating the video and Dr. Gleghorn for his enormous contribution through this stunning mural and his time to discuss it on camera.
