Mr Le is a big fan of the annual South Australian Living Artists Festival, which is celebrating its 20th year, and has invited 11 artists to display their works.

“My wife Lan and I are thrilled to welcome the public to Government House for the Governor’s Sculptural Garden,’’ Mr Le says.

“We have a wonderful range of sculptures on display which showcase the breadth of artistic talent in South Australia.

“The SALA Festival plays a major role in promoting artistic and cultural vibrancy and inclusivity in our state.’’
