Sculptures by the Sea
When: December & January
Where: Granite Island, Victor Harbor
‘Sculpture Encounters – Granite Island’ places sculptures by artists from South Australia and across the world among the spectacular scenery and coastal views on Granite Island. By integrating sculptures into the landscape it aims to provide visitors to the island with a different experience as they wander the track. The sculptures are leased from artists who have previously exhibited in one of the Sculpture by the Sea exhibitions at Cottesloe Beach in Perth or on the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk in Sydney, together with specially commissioned installation works for sites on Granite Island. Each of these works has been carefully selected by our Curatorial Panel.
