SWELL Sculpture Festival returns for 2018 and will once again transform Currumbin Beach into a mesmerising and surreal exhibition of over 50 intriguing artworks from both Australian and international artists. SWELL Sculpture Festival is one of the Gold Coast’s signature annual events, which aims to merge environment with art, and offers something for all to see, engage with, and get inspired from.
SWELL Sculpture Festival is the brainchild of Natasha Edwards and Kylie Mitchell-Smith. Created in 2002, their idea was to bring art to an accessible environment, and soon enough the first SWELL Sculpture Festival took place the year after, featuring 23 sculptures and attracting around 6,000 people. Since then, SWELL Sculpture Festival has took place each year on the Gold Coast, and now draws in crowds of nearly 300,000 for its incredible annual display of art on Currumbin Beach, one of the Gold Coast’s most picturesque beachfronts.
This 2018, SWELL Sculpture Festival will return to Currumbin Beach with more sculptures and eye-catching beachfront installations for ten days in September. Currumbin Beach is one of the Southern Gold Coast’s prized beaches, and provides the perfect backdrop for SWELL Sculpture Festival. Stop by to see this scenic beachfront transform into a magical display of over 50 environmental artworks, which are amusing, thought-provoking, and inspiring for all ages and tastes.
Embrace artistic spirit, celebrate freedom of expression, and be inspired this spring with the 2018 SWELL Sculpture Festival on Currumbin Beach, taking place from September 14 to September 23.
SWELL Sculpture Festival is free to attend, and can be enjoyed within walking distance from our Currumbin family accommodation. Start planning a memorable break on the Gold Coast this spring with Bay of Palms Resort - just visit https://www.hisitedirect.com.au/
