The GPS enabled app offers a free, interactive way for visitors to easily navigate around the Sculpture by the Sea exhibitions and discover details about the artworks, and the talented artists who created them.
The app is free to download and includes an interactive map, catalogue details of all exhibiting artists at each exhibition, stunning photographs, news and award announcements. The app also gives users the option to “like” an unlimited number of artists’ sculptures, creating a personal shortlist of favourite sculptures ready to be voted for in the popular Allens People’s Choice and Kids’ Choice Prizes.
Audio tours of some of the sculptures in the exhibition will be available via a small donation. Created by Dr Michael Hill, Head of Art History and Theory, National Art School, each piece of audio lasts for around one minute and offers unique insights into the artists and their sculptures. Look out for the artworks with a headphone icon on the site number.
A donation of $2.99 (or above) will unlock all audio recordings available.
Voluntary tax-deductible donations – starting at $5 – can also be made directly through the app.
The app will be updated for each Sculpture by the Sea exhibition. Currently the app features two exhibitions: Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe 2022 and the Snowy Valleys Sculpture Trail.
Details about Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2022 will be live on the app from Friday 21 October.
The development of the Sculpture by the Sea App is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW. Audio recordings were kindly made with the assistance of Smith & Western Sound.
