Chapter Five

Transfield's widespread involvement in the arts during the 1960s extended to, for example, helping John Kaldor with Christo's Little Bay project: the wrapping of 2.4 kilometres of coastline in Sydney, with one million square feet of fabric.

In January 1970, the company opened its own Art Gallery on the 13th floor of the newly extended Transfield House in North Sydney. It hosted works by the previous winners of the Transfield Art Prize, material held in the Dobell Foundation collection and works acquired by the Company.
