Congratulations to Sigmund Jorgensen in his Australia Day award and recognition for service to the visual arts and to the community.
His award is well deserved. A friend., mentor and associate.
Sigmund has been a major inspiration , not just in my life but too many others.
His contribution to the Arts and the Eltham community is significant. Founder of the Monstavat Melbourne Jazz Festival, Cliche Restaurant and former Nillumbik Mayor. All those who have had the opportunity to meet him have been enriched by their association. A creative thinker and artisan. SBS radio boadcast earlier today an extensive interview with Sigmund covering his many achievements.
Monstalvat is more than just a building, it is the people behind Monstalvat that make Monstalvat what it really is. A mountain of salvation dedicated to Art, Architecture, Music and Culture. Sigmund is very much part of that legacy that has enriched our lives.
