Stephen Bowers

The John Bray Memorial Fountain was commissioned by the City of Adelaide in 1994. In collaboration with the Architect Matthew Hardy, the artist Stephen Bowers designed the fountain as a memorial to the poet, writer and jurist, John Bray who lived alongside Hurtle Square. One of John Bray’s poems has been incorporated into the structure, and was to be a celebratory memorial to life of a valued individual and his poetry as a reminder of his contribution to the intellectual and cultural society in South Australia.
