Drinking Fountain

John Wood

Please note: Temporarily unavailable for viewing due to restoration works.

This fountain was commissioned by the Art Gallery of South Australia to coincide with the opening of its 1979 refurbishment. Located adjacent to main entrance, the patinated bronze drum is contrasted by the undulating chrome-plated rippled surface that the jets of water spray across that the user activates.
