Bequest gifts have the ability to reflect your individual interests.
Ronald Johnson, a Sydney financier and art lover, knew that art was an important component of a healthy and vibrant community. He wanted his legacy to reflect his own passion for art and be something he felt others could appreciate. His bequest gift to the Botanic Gardens allowed the creation of a sculpture by the Sydney Harbour that fits beautifully with the landscape and mission of the Garden, as it is both art and habitat. The crannies and crevices in the sculpture encourage the colonisation of the many creatures that call the Gardens home – think bats, lizards, skinks, geckoes, and various native bees.
Ronald’s generous legacy reflects his lifelong passions of art, animals, and nature.
