Sculpture by the Sea for Manly

Member for Manly James Griffin has urged the Sculpture by the Sea public art exhibition to ditch its digs in the Eastern Suburbs and make its way to Sydney’s Northern Beaches, and its best beach – Manly – for the 2020 exhibition.

The NSW Government, through its agency Create NSW, is a major sponsor of the event, which draws in 500,000 visitors viewing sculptures from Bondi to Tamarama.

“With a supportive Council and community, the natural next step for Sculpture by the Sea is to relocate between the heads into a new era along Manly’s iconic foreshore walk, from Shelly Beach to Queenscliff,” Mr Griffin said.

“Whilst Waverley Council may be wavering on its support, Sydney’s Northern Beaches is ready to take on this iconic public art exhibition.

“The Inner West Council, who is also open to hosting the event, should instead consider a sister-event named Sculpture by the Harbour.

“Sculpture by the Sea deserves to have its home overlooking the Pacific Ocean coastline, as it always has, and always should.”
