The Shop Art Projects are a special part of the Snowy Valleys Sculpture Trail. Four long term unoccupied shops in Batlow and Tumbarumba have been leased for commissioned artists to install site specific artworks; contributing to the activation of the streetscapes and creating another reason for people to visit the towns. During the artist’s installation they stay in the Snowy Valleys and engage with the local community, with free workshops and artist talks.
The Snowy Valleys Sculpture Trail is funded by the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund of the NSW government.
This Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Program is jointly funded by the Commonwealth and the New South Wales Government under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.
