Description

A LIFE-size bronze sculpture of Dame Elisabeth Murdoch is located in the foyer of the Frankston Arts Centre. 

The statue, commemorating the late philanthropist's contribution to her local community, was revealed before dignitaries, family and friends by her daughters Anne Kantor and Janet Calvert-Jones.

Created by leading Australian sculptor Peter Corlett, the sculpture was unveiled in the lobby of the Frankston Arts Centre, to recognise Dame Elisabeth's devotion to the arts community.

Dame Elisabeth died on December 5 2012, aged 103.

Her granddaughter said the sculpture, depicting the renowned arts patron with her hands open in a welcoming stance, bore a heartening likeness to her grandmother.
