'Girl on a Slide' Sculpture

The 'Girl on a Slide' sculpture was created by artist John Dowie and first called Rundle Mall home in 1977.

The sculpture was donated to the City of Adelaide by the now closed John Martins department store and created in response to a request by the architect of newly-formed Rundle Mall, Ian Hannaford, who was looking for a 'discovery piece' — one that was 'inconspicuous from a distance, then come upon by chance'.

Dowie is one of South Australia's most respected sculptors and his works appear all over Adelaide, from the iconic 'Three Rivers' fountain in Victoria Square to 'Alice' in Rymill Park.

Don't forget to look up! The 'Progress' sculpture has looked over Rundle Mall for more than 50 years.
