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.
- 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.
- If you want gram worthy photos of #SXSCottesloe17
Head out early before the crowds or right at golden hour
- 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.
- 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
- 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
- Don’t forget to SLIP, SLOP, SLAP
- And don’t forget your water
SCULPTURE BY THE SEA Cottesloe runs from 3-20 March
