Sculpture by the Sea

 

We went to Sculpture by the Sea at Bondi last weekend. What a great example of community engagement – the original aim was to create “an accessible visual arts event in Sydney.” We spent almost six hours there (including lunch and parking) and the girls were enthralled virtually the whole time. We saw someone adopting the pose of the red man so Cathy encouraged the girls to interact with the sculptures as we went. They had a great time and it really helped keep them interested.

 

 

 

The setting was fantastic and there were heaps of people. I admire people who have the vision, the passion and the organisational skills required to organise something like this. It really is bringing art out of the galleries and into the community. It’s well worth a visit.
