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.
