It's a special birthday for one of Sydney's favourite art events, as 2017 marks 21 strong years from Sculpture by the Sea. Kicking off on Thursday, October 19, two clicks of Australia's most picturesque coastline in Bondi will be transformed into a living, breathing artscape. Over 100 pieces from both Australian and international artists will be on show, including one from James Dive, creator of 2006's now infamous melting ice cream truck.
There's also the chance for a chin wag with the artists themselves at the Aqualand Artist Talks series, which will take place each Saturday and Sunday of the exhibition. Plus, it coincides with this year's Sydney Sculpture Conference if you can't get enough of the art form. So keep your fingers crossed for good weather — the whole thing runs until November 5.
