Sculpture by the Sea

20 October 2013

In an ingenious fusion of sculpture and surf, Sculpture by the Sea brings outdoor exhibitions to the coast of Sydney along the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk, from October 24 to November 10 this year.

Sculpture by the Sea is the world’s largest annual free outdoor sculpture exhibition and, as such, is home to many well-known artists and a number of up-and-coming sculptors, from both Australia and around the world.

Now in its 17th year, the event is a favourite for locals to check out and visitors to Sydney, to enjoy the lead in to summer.

For 2kms along the shoreline between Bondi and Tamarama, visitors can wander along the coastal walk and see over 100 temporary sculptures.

There are also artworks on display indoors. Sculpture Inside brings the outdoors in, by offering a secondary exhibition of artworks. You have the opportunity to purchase an artwork by one of the established Australian and international artists to take home with you. This year, the inside section of the event will be held at Mark’s Park at Tamarama Beach, open during work hours in the week and from 9am-7pm over the weekend.

Sydney has glorious temperate weather during this time of year – Don’t forget to check out Bondi Beach and the many activities in the area. Bondi is one of the most stunning beach areas in Sydney and has plenty to offer in the way of markets, shops, cafes and restaurants.
