The City of Fremantle and the Fremantle story team were on site at sunrise on Friday morning to capture the whole process on video, from the arrival of the sea containers by truck in the morning to the delicate placement of the final three containers to form the rainbow at around 3 pm.
The #freorainbow or #containbow as the install team nicknamed it on Friday, is already generating interest with wedding photos and plenty of selfies coming through on social media.
The sculpture by prominent Perth artist Marcus Canning and commissioned by the City of Fremantle is constructed from nine recycled sea containers joined to form an arch. Colourful and creative, the sea containers form the shape of a giant rainbow as a universal symbol of hope and inspiration as well as being a highly visible Fremantle welcome statement.
Pop down and see it for yourself at Beach Reserve adjacent to Canning Highway, overlooking the Swan River and the port! There’s plenty of parking at East Street Jetty.
