We cooperate as an association to advance the practice of sculpture and the reputation and appreciation of sculpture and sculptors in the community. This is regardless of whether or not we make a living from sculpture and regardless of our preferred style or medium. To this end we support artists’ moral rights, we advocate a professional attitude to the production and presentation of work and encourage the artistic and intellectual stimulation of interaction amongst artists of all persuasions.

Melbourne Prize for Urban Sculpture

The Melbourne Prize for Urban Sculpture highlights the importance of the aesthetic quality and liveability of the urban environment and its relationship with sculpture, in all its forms.

The 2017 program will be similar to 2014 but we have some exciting additions.

An Installation Art Exhibition in Sydney at Macquarie Park.

It is at Eden Gardens, which contains a garden centre, function centre, restaurant and large display garden designed by Jon Shinkfield. We are trying to encourage site specific art that’s relevant to this garden and its community.

The judging panel consists of Allan Giddy, Graham Forsyth and Trevor Weekes. Stipends are available for up to A$10,000 for artists to complete their works, which will feature throughout the 2.5 hectare garden. Up to 40 installations will be accepted this year from established and student artists, making it the largest exhibition of significantly funded commissioned installation works in Australia.

The 2017 Information Kit for Eden Unearthed 2017 can also be accessed online here. Further information can be viewed at both the Eden Gardens Website and Eden Gardens Blog. You can also check out the Callout on Arts Hub.

I thought perhaps some of the artists you work with might be interested in applying.

Applications for 2017 Eden Unearthed can be accessed here.

Please let me know if you’d like me to mail you a past catalogues or make an appointment to see me and view the garden.

Lodge applications by COB, 13 April 2017. Further queries should be forwarded to:
