The largest outdoor sculpture exhibition in Queensland is returning to Currumbin Beach in September 2022.
The 20th annual SWELL Sculpture Festival honours people, art, and place. It started when Natasha Edwards and Kylie Mitchell-Smith discussed the idea of developing a unique artistic experience for everyone. In September 2003, 6,000 people attended the inaugural SWELL Sculpture Festival and enjoyed the 23 works on display.
Fast forward to 2022, the festival will feature over 50 sculptures by Australian and international artists along Currumbin Beach from September 9 to 18. Also, several sculptures part of the free exhibition, accessible at all times, come alive when illuminated by the southern sky.
Additionally, visitors can connect with the sculptures, participate in artist master classes and kid-friendly workshops, browse around the SWELL Smalls Gallery and enjoy twilight walks and educational artist talks to gain fresh insights.
