Earlier this year (2015) Art4place were granted funds by the Sunshine Coast Council to hire Wayne Markwort to again work with the local artists to fines the works so that the could become part of the SCC's public art collection; and be installed on the Maleny Trail on the Maleny Precinct. The artists were pleased that another experienced local stone sculptor was able to assist them to add to their works two years on.
