The Ingenuity 3D Sculpture Festival Mullumbimby has been a wonderful addition to the town with 31 temporary sculptures on show until next Sunday with four permanent works already installed throughout Palm Park.

The event was a huge hit with Mullum Music Festival goers on the weekend and there are five more days to enjoy the work with the exhibition finishing on Sunday.

This year’s event is the second annual outing for the free artwork festival, the gallery provided Creative Mullumbimby.

Tomorrow there will be two events for the show – curator Dev Lengjel will lead a guided walk through the exhibition and talk about the art, the artist and what it takes to curate an exhibition, and in the evening you can experience Interconnected, the work of Alex Moss which is an interactive sound and projection experience in the depth of Palm Park next to Christopher Kinzel’s Prayerwheel.

The interactive experience with Alex Moss will begin at 7pm in the park and Dev’s tour will start at 5pm, leaving from the scout hall.
