The Walter Burley Griffin Society has launched the Marion Mahony Griffin Funding Request to help finance a contemporary sculpture in honour of Marion.
The Walter Burley Griffin Society was established in 1988 in Sydney, Australia. It commemorates the lives and works of Walter Burley Griffin (1876–1937) and Marion Mahony Griffin (1871–1961) and promotes the environmental ideals and community life they fostered in Australia.
To commemorate the centenary of the Griffins’ Castlecrag and the 150th anniversary of Marion Mahony Griffin’s birth in 2021, the Society has launched the Marion Mahony Griffin Funding Request to help finance a contemporary sculpture in honour of Marion.
