About the shop art projects

The Shop Art Projects were a special part of the first years of the Snowy Valleys Sculpture Trail. Four long term unoccupied shops in Batlow and Tumbarumba were leased for local and visiting artists to install site specific artworks that contributed to the streetscapes and creating another reason for people to visit the towns.  During the artist’s installation they stayed in the Snowy Valleys often working with Schools and locals to make their artworks while free sculpture making workshops and artist talks.

The Snowy Valleys Sculpture Trail is funded by the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund of the NSW Government.


Stage one of the Snowy Valleys Sculpture Trail was jointly funded by the Australian and NSW Government’s Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund, under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.
