A new, permanent home will be found for Ballarat City Council’s Harmony roundabout artwork followings its removal from Alfred Deakin Place.

The artwork was originally installed at the intersection of Mair and Ripon Streets in 2016.

It was removed because it did not match the heritage overlay of the area.

Now the artwork is back in storage following Harmony Fest.

Council infrastructure and environment director Terry Demeo said the sculpture would be moved to a new home following confirmation of a new location later this year.

Two locations for the artwork have previously been considered, including the grass along Grenville Street, near the Ballarat Magistrates Court, and L.T Fraser Reserve on Main Road.

It was originally planned to spend just a month at Alfred Deakin Place before it was shifted to another location.
