Bring art to life for your family and friends at Sculpture at Scenic World 2016 with activities for people of all ages and value-driven accommodation packages to suit all visitors to the Blue Mountains, 8 April – 8 May.
From exploring art works by more than 30 artists in the Jurassic rainforest to taking part in Sculpture for Small People, the exhibition and its extensive Public Program offer plenty of entertainment and education while also providing access to the world-famous Scenic World.
Making art accessible, Sculpture at Scenic World Exhibition Manager, Justin Morrissey, said experiencing the main exhibition via Australia’s longest elevated boardwalk provided an energising and engaging platform for families and friends to discover artworks created by local and international artists.
“Children love visiting Sculpture at Scenic World because the location of the artworks in the rainforest makes you see things differently – the forest becomes a thoroughly interactive and interpretive space,” Justin said. “It takes your appreciation of the artworks to a whole new level.”
Sculpture for Small People encourages children to play, learn and create, engaging with this year’s exhibiting artists and the methodologies employed in their works. The fun, educational workshops allow children to take home their artwork – along with new skills to keep creating. Cost is $15 and includes all materials.
Rock On is an exciting ‘free to the public’ program showcasing a diverse array of sculpture from the stone arts in the Blue Mountains. Works can be viewed 8 April – 8 May at the Scenic World forecourt, the Carrington Hotel, the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre, The Hydro Majestic Hotel, and Braemer Gallery, Springwood.
Tickets to the main exhibition, Sculpture at Scenic World, include exhibition entry to the rainforest where the unique sculptures are curated along the 2.4 kilometre Scenic Boardwalk and unlimited rides on the Scenic Railway, Skyway and Cableway.
To make a trip to the Mountains a mini getaway, six of the Blue Mountain’s most recognisable, customer-focused resorts, spas, hotels and lodges including the newly rejuvenated Hydro Majestic, have joined with Sculpture at Scenic World to offer exclusive over-night art escape packages, combining the Ultimate Sculpture Pass to Scenic World with inclusions such as breakfast, high tea, parking, use of leisure facilities, free WiFi and more.
