Sculpture by the Sea

The seaside sculpture exhibition returns for its 21st year.
It’s a special birthday for one of Sydney’s favourite art events, as 2017 marks 21 strong years from Sculpture by the Sea. Over 100 pieces from both Australian and international artists will be on show, including one from James Dive, creator of 2006’s now infamous melting ice cream truck.
There’s also the chance for a chin wag with the artists themselves at the Aqualand Artist Talks series, which will take place each Saturday and Sunday of the exhibition. Plus, it coincides with this year’s Sydney Sculpture Conference if you can’t get enough of the art form. So keep your fingers crossed for good weather — the whole thing runs until November 5.
Where: Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk, Sydney
When: 4th and 5th November
