Let them feel the light created by artist Emma Coulter, is an integrated three-story sculpture rising up through the light filled atrium of Yarrila Place, dispersing colour and light, in acknowledgement of the meaning of Yarrilla – to illuminate and brighten – whilst also drawing inspiration from Coffs Harbour’s geographic coastal location.
