For about ten days each year, the Currumbin Beach esplanade transforms into a sculpture park, alive and brimming with creative juices. The foreshore grass, trees, sand dunes and the sentinel-like rocks that book-end Currumbin Beach provide the landscape for around 55 sculptures to stand, sit, hang, chime, swing or wheel around.
And that’s what I saw when I was out riding today.
Today it was installation day for the Swell Sculpture Festival. Artists combined with trucks, cranes, shovels and many helping hands to set up their exhibits in preparation for the festival starting on this Friday, 11th September. It runs through to Sunday 20th September.
From what I saw today, it looks like a great festival is in the making with amazing exhibits and sparkling Spring skies.
And of course riding your bicycle is a great way to get to Swell. So, to inspire…
Here’s a peek of “Wheelie Windy” by artist Ged McCormick – A wind farm made of recycled bicycle wheels – which of course places it right at the heart of abike4allseasons 🙂
