Regardless of whether you are new to Sydney or you have been here forever, one thing is for certain - you need to add Sculptures by the Sea to your to-do list over the coming weeks.
This year marks the exhibition’s 18th anniversary, where it will run in Sydney from the 23rd October to the 9th November 2014. The show sees the breath-taking costal walkway between Bondi to Coogee transformed into a temporary sculpture park featuring over 100 sculptures by artists from not only Australia, but all over the globe. Taking art out of a gallery setting and placing on one of Australia’s most famous beaches, Sculptures by the Sea is not only innovative but free – in fact, it’s the world’s largest free public sculpture exhibition.
With the Sydney summer currently in full swing, make the most of those longer evenings and head down to Bondi for something a bit different. If you’re new to Sydney and you’re unsure of how to get there, never fear – there’s directions available here. You can also see examples of the work on display at the exhibition website or on their Facebook page. If you do happen to go and get some good snaps of your own, be sure to share them with us!
If you’re reading this all the way over in Perth, don’t feel too left out. The exhibition is coming your way in the New Year, where it’ll be held in Cottesloe from the 6th to the 23rd March 2015.
Have fun, culture vultures!
