Mullumbimby is having its own sculpture show that will feature 25 local artists in Palm Park during the Mullum Music Festival. The inaugural Ingenuity Sculpture Festival, supported by the Mullum Music Festival, will create an oasis of delights from the Mullumbimby Scout Hall to Federation Bridge set among the palms and along the river bank to enjoy.
‘Ingenuity is our inaugural Mullum Sculpture Festival and it represents that not afraid to speak out or bust out Mullum state of mind,’ said curator Gabrielle Dalton.
There will also be a temporary gallery made out of pallets called the Castle of Dreams in the Scout Hall that will exhibit smaller works by students and the community.
Workshops and artist talks
Everyone is invited to be inspired by the sculptures in the park and get hands on with making their own sculpture at the Scout Hall, with the hep of professional artists, in 30 minutes.
‘There will be locals giving guided tours through the sculptural works discussing what the artists may have meant by their works and at various times the artists will be present to answer your questions,’ said Gabrielle.
‘Tours will be taking place at 11.30am and 2.30pm and if you are lucky you might get to enjoy some surprise performance works.’
A sound sculpture will open the the sculpture walk on November 14 between 6 and 7pm at the bend in the river in Palm Park and everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the experience.
‘We hope that the sculpture walk will be a wonderful quiet retreat for people in town, just a few steps away from the hub bub of the Music Festival,’ said Gabrielle.
