The ninth annual Swell Sculpture Festival, held in Queensland, Australia, has just wrapped up. Sorry I just found this news now – I’m sure if I could have notified you before September 9, you might have flown out there for it. They did feature some amazing pieces though:
Richard Howie’s sculpture reminds me of those roiling spheres of fish featured on The Discovery Channel’s Planet Earth.
What a wonderful art installation, where the pieces welcome interaction.
Approximately 50 large-scale sculptures adorn Currumbin Beach each year for this event. For 10 days, visitors can come and walk among the displays, day and night. There are artist talks, a Public Art Forum, and the opportunity to participate in master classes and children’s workshops.
