Brisbane visual artist Donna Hawkins created a public art work based on the question, 'Why do you love Queensland?'
Donna: "I wanted to create an artwork that the public could participate in, something that would be a reminder of why we love Queensland. I also wanted it to be a fitting tribute to Queensland Premier Anna Bligh and her emergency management team, their tireless efforts and community spirit they showed during the recent natural disasters, the tragic widespread flooding and cyclone Yasi damage in January 2011.
It's a colourful and fun piece and it was wonderful to engage with people on the street about why they love Queensland. People were quite enthusiastic; the warm weather, beaches and relaxed, friendly people were the answers most often given."
