A dazzling day of creative fun and entertainment in the sculpture garden


You and your family are invited to help us celebrate ten years of Sculpture Garden Sunday when we turn the sculpture garden into a family wonderland of creative workshops and installations.

Explore colour and light with activities inspired by the James Turrell: A Retrospective exhibition. Create a landscape of spots, draw the world seen through a sphere, make a patina on metal and create an ecosystem of critters to live in the garden. These are just some of the activities on offer.

Be sure to catch the live music concert on the main stage featuring local Mr Tim and the Fuzzy Elbows. Entertainment for kids and adults alike with original rock-out songs to make everyone dance and sing.

And if you see our wandering artist Edvard Von Eschehelp him out with his severe case of artist block. Edvard is forever yearning to stumble across his next flash of artistic inspiration and is hoping he will find it at Sculpture Garden Sunday! 

Bring a picnic to share under the trees. Coffee, sausage sizzle and other refreshments will be available for purchase.

All activities are free with materials provided.
