Sculptures by the sea 2017

My tips on how you can see all 78 exhibits at Sculptures by the Sea #SXSCottesloe17

Sculpture by the Sea is LEGIT LIT
Returning for its 13th year, it is spectacular of culture and artistic statement that “offers the public the opportunity to engage and interact with artworks from prominent and Australian and international artists.” Senator the Hon Mitch Fifield, Minister for the Arts

Photographed here are just some of the works.

I headed down to our iconic Cottesloe Beach on Friday for the launch of #SXSCottesloe17
It was a balmy 32 degrees, and the beach was filled with sunbathers, swimmers, school children arriving to check out the sculptures and seagulls trying to swoop on some good ol’ hot chips.

There’s a total of 78 exhibits along Cottesloe Beach and here are my tips on how you can see them all without running into the big crowds or getting heat stroke.

  1. For the most optimal experience of these sculptures head out to Cottesloe right after sunrise. This is the only time you’ll actually be able to 1) Find a good park 2) Be able to walk along the entire beach without maneuvering around sunbathers 3) Not get too hot.
  2. If you want gram worthy photos ofย #SXSCottesloe17
    Head out early before the crowds or right at golden hour
  3. Forget your dope kicks
    Now, this may be just a reminder for me, but fam settle for a good pair of haivanas or even slides.
  4. Get a map and plan out your beach day
    Catalogue and Map are $10
    I would start early for the reef side of the beach.
    Get some brunch at Il Lido
    Walk some more along the grass sculptures
    Get a mid-morning tan
    Walk some more along the beach
    Get some fish and chips
    Get an afternoon tan
    Walk some more
    Finish your day at Red Spoon with some FROYO or drinks at Cottesloe Beach Hotel
  5. Alternatively, you could just head out early get a full walk along the beach, get a swim in, get some brunch and have a brilliant day
  6. Don’t forget to SLIP, SLOP, SLAP
  7. And don’t forget your water
