The 2016 Sculpture by the Sea line-up has some local art stars – Sean Cordeiro & Claire Healy, Ken Unsworth, Michael Snape, and the late (and legendary) Inge King – and plenty of regulars. But the most captivating works can come from the least-known artists. All it takes is a great idea.
The winner of this year’s $60,000 acquisitive prize, sponsored by Aqualand, is Johannes Pannekoek for his work ‘Change Ahead’. This means the work will be essentially gifted by Aqualand to North Sydney Council, to be installed permanently outdoors.
As with last year, there’s a Grounds by the Sea pop-up at Marks Park with coffee and food to sustain you on your art adventure.
