Randwick Greens Councillor Murray Matson is urging local Sydney Councillors to protest what he claims is a hidden agenda to sell off the Darlinghurst site of the National Art School
He said this morning,
“Every Sydney Council will have had students who went to National Art School and grew as artists. As a local Councillor I can smell a secret plan to sell off this location-rich site. What an appallingly bad artistic blow that would be to our constituents. This would never happen in Melbourne”.
He pointed out that,
“The National Art School has always focused on the craft and by doing so has helped artist who were talented but not good enough with maths and written skills to get into classic tertiary institutions.”
