6 February - 14 March 2021
Every two years we hold the $30,000 Wollongong Acquisitive Sculpture Award at Wollongong Botanic Garden.
The 2020 Sculpture in the Garden was postponed due to COVID-19, and is now re-launching with the same artists on 6 February 2021.
Sculptures and installations are displayed throughout the garden. The winning work becomes a permanent part of our city’s public art collection.
Sculpture in the Garden (also known as the Wollongong Acquisitive Sculpture Award) is open to local, national and international artists.
