There have been mixed reactions to the unveiling of three new public artworks in Sydney’s central business district, including a 50-metre cloud-shaped arch.

Reaction on Twitter and Facebook has ranged from complaints about the artworks being a waste of taxpayers’ money to those who believe they would improve the city.

Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore said everyone would be able to have their say as the project was open to public consultation and has to go through a development application process.

“I think every step has been taken to get the most exciting art proposals for our city and of course we now go through a process of consultation,” she said.

“We look forward to engaging with people and invite everyone to go to our website and give us their views.”
