The Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe exhibition, held in March 2022, marked the 50th Sculpture by the Sea exhibition held at the following locations in Australia and Denmark:

  • 23 Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi exhibitions on the Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk since 1997;
  • 18 Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe exhibitions staged on Cottesloe beach since 2005;
  •  Four Sculpture by the Sea, Aarhus exhibitions staged in Denmark in 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015; and
  • Five exhibitions held in the 1998 Sydney Olympic Arts Festival, ‘A Sea Change’, held in Albany (WA), Bondi (NSW), Darwin (NT), Noosa (QLD); and Tasman Peninsula (TAS), with the Tasman Peninsula exhibition staged again in 2001.

Messages of congratulations and ongoing support were received from around the world to mark the occasion of a half century of exhibitions, expressing what Sculpture by the Sea has meant to them – both from a personal perspective and on behalf of the people, places and artists they represent.
