RHONDA SAMPSON

February 16, 2021

If you have been to Campbelltown Sports Stadium lately, there is a good chance you have stumbled on a new addition at the venue.

It's not turf, a grand stand or even goal posts – it's a mural from local artist, Rhonda Sampson.

The Eagle Vale artist's Aboriginal mural truly is a sight to behold.

The patterns, the colours and the composition really do make for a wonderful piece.

Ms Sampson, a Kamilaroi woman, titled the work Past, Present and Future.

The past acknowledges the Dharawal people – the traditional owners of the land the stadium is built on.

The present acknowledges the actual stadium as a venue that brings together people from far and wide for events like A-League and NRL games.

And the future is represents Campbelltown and a rapidly growing and changing community.

Importantly, a Welcome to Country also accompanies to piece and it clear for all to see.

We are so lucky in Campbelltown to have a plethora of talented artists that call our local area home.

Thank you Rhonda for such a great creation that really does a wonderful job in paying homage to Campbelltown's past, present and future.
