Given the news late this afternoon that community transmission of Covid-19 has begun in Perth we have decided to close this year’s Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe.

We would like to thank the artists, visitors, volunteers, sponsors, donors and the Town of Cottesloe for how they enthusiastically embraced this year’s exhibition.

As we are unable to organise the heavy equipment required to de-install the exhibition until Monday 23 March, most of the sculptures will remain at Cottesloe over the weekend and we will have our usual security measures in place. However, from this afternoon (Thursday 19 March) we stopped all interaction by our staff and volunteers with our visitors, and our schools program with artist-led sculpture making workshops will not operate tomorrow (Friday 20 March) or Monday (23 March).
