Sculpture by the Sea, outdoor exhibition in Australia

The 9th Annual Sculpture By The Sea Transforms Spectacular Cottesloe From 8 – 25 March, 2013

Sculpture by the Sea returns to Cottesloe Beach with over 70 sculptures set to transform Perth’s most popular beach into a sculptural wonderland for the 9th annual exhibition from 8 – 25 March 2013.

Over 70 artists from across WA, Australia and 12 different countries will create Perth’s largest outdoor sculpture exhibition that stretches along the white sands and grassed terraces of Cottesloe beach to the groyne overlooking the Indian Ocean.

This year’s exhibition includes works from some of the world’s most distinguished artists including the UK’s Sir Anthony Caro OM, China’s Chen Wenling and Professor Sui Jianguo, along with the recipient of the main prize at Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2012 – the Balnaves Foundation Sculpture Prize – US artist, Peter Lundberg.  Lundberg’s work from last year’s Cottesloe exhibition was acquired by the Town of Cottesloe for its collection and is located at the southern end of Marine Parade.  Each year the Town of Cottesloe purchases a work for their permanent collection valued up to $40,000.

Nearly half of the artists in this year’s Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe are from WA including Ron Gomboc, Jennifer Cochrane, Ayad Alqaragholli, Alessandra Rossi and one of the recipients of last year’s prestigious Helen Lempriere Scholarship, Tom de Munk-Kerkmeer.

Over 220,000 people are expected to visit Cottesloe Beach during the 18-day exhibition, from serious art-lovers and collectors to people who do not normally visit galleries but who have come to enjoy the exhibition from year to year while enjoying the sun, sea and sand.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer is proud to join with community leaders for the launch of SEE ART ORLANDO, a public sculpture community project designed to enhance the aesthetic experience and cultural image of Downtown Orlando through the installation of iconic works of art throughout the city core. This new initiative builds on Orlando’s already vibrant arts community that was recently reported to generate approximately $94 million worth of spending by tourists, residents and nonprofit organizations helping to support nearly 3,487 local jobs according to a study done by Americans for the Arts.

“This is the decade for the arts in Orlando – from the construction of the new Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts to this new collaborative project, SEE ART ORLANDO – the arts are thriving in our community,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. “I believe this project will further propel Downtown Orlando as destination for not only residents from across the region, but also our visitors.”

SEE ART ORLANDO is a non-profit organization comprised of community leaders who represent a cross section of arts organizations, including United Arts, Downtown Arts District, Orange County Cultural Arts Advisory Board, City Arts Factory and Florida Theatrical Association. Phase I of the project will include up to nine permanent sculpture installations with high-visibility in Downtown Orlando. Each installation will be underwritten by corporate sponsors and maintained by the City of Orlando without utilizing taxpayer dollars. The first phase of sculptures is expected to be installed by the Summer of 2013. See Art Orlando board members include Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, Jennifer Quigley(chair), Frank Billingsley, Linda Landman Gonzalez, Ron Legler, Jocelynn White, Donna Dowless and Wendy Connor.

See Art Orlando’s spokesperson Jennifer Quigley said "Public Art enriches our quality of life and will engage both visitors and residents alike. Our vision is to have artists from across the globe and here at home create contemporary sculpted art that reflects our young, dynamic community’s spirit."

A local, national and international call for artists is underway, as SEE ART ORLANDO seeks experienced, professional sculptors to create the works of art to be displayed throughout Downtown. Artists interested in being considered for the 2012-13 SEE ART ORLANDO

Sculpture project must apply by October 15, 2012.
