Much like other free public events such as Symphony Under the Stars in Sydney’s Domain, Sculpture by the Sea appeals to the broadest audience, drawing hundreds of thousands of spectators in the course of its run.

Founding Director, David Handley explains on his website how the initial idea behind Sculpture by the Sea was to “dilute the commercial world by having more free things”.

Over the years the event has demonstrated the ingenuity of Australian artists, bringing them into close contact with artists overseas.

This year Cottesloe Beach hosted the incredible artworks of 69 national and international artists.
