Every two years we hold the $30,000 Wollongong Acquisitive Sculpture Award at Wollongong Botanic Garden.
The 2020 Sculpture in the Garden exhibition has been postponed until further notice.
Sculptures and installations are displayed throughout the garden. The winning work becomes a permanent part of our city’s public art collection.
Sculpture in the Garden (also known as the Wollongong Acquisitive Sculpture Award) is open to local, national and international artists. Applications have now closed for the 2020 Sculpture in the Garden.
You can see the awarded works from previous years below.
