Swell Sculpture Festival – Art at Your Beach Front Holiday Accommodation’s Door Step
But every September, since 2002, Currumbin Beach is transformed into a lively and vibrant area which showcases a diverse number of sculptures crafted by seasoned masters and rising stars both from the local and international scenes in the Swell Sculpture Festival.
Swell Sculpture Festivall transforms Currumbin Beach into one big outdoor art gallery in September of every year. The festival, which is free for the public, is open at all hours. Coupled with the light of the southern sky, these sculptures, ranging from the beautiful and the sublime to thought provoking pieces, will definitely transform the landscape and make twilight walks more interesting.
Apart from the sculptures displayed on Currumbin Beach, the organisers have put together informative artist talks as well as an exhibit at the Swell Smalls Gallery. If you have nothing much to do in your self-contained accommodation (Gold Coast), you and your family can attend classes and children’s workshops.
The organisers set up The Hub which provides visitors information about the festival and the participating artists. The Hub centrally located along the walkway and is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you want to purchase Swell caps and exhibition programs, know more about the activities lined up for the festival, vote for your favourite sculpture, or even enquire about how to purchase a sculptural piece, you can check out The Hub.
Although the organisers encourage visitors to drop by using bikes, the event venue is accessible by car via the M1 Motorway or Gold Coast Highway, by bus or by train. Parking will be available at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Car Park, Currumbin Alley car park, Palm Beach Parklands and in surrounding streets for parking.
The organisers are encouraging visitors to bring blankets as well as packed lunches so they can have a picnic while enjoying the works of art on display. Bringing enough water to keep you hydrated for the tour is also a good idea. If you are not planning on having a picnic, there are several food establishments along Currumbin Beach that you can try.
