Griffith Pioneer Park Museum, 2-18 May, 9.30am-4pm

Flagship event of Griffith's 100 year celebrations

Seven master sculptors from across the globe will gather in Griffith, Riverina NSW this year to create beautiful stone sculptures. Members of the public are invited to be part of this unprecedented and unique opportunity and watch the master sculptors saw, cut and carve as they transform blocks to artworks. People can also participate in art Master Classes and events during the symposium.

Each artist offers a unique style and personality and will develop a work based on their interpretation of the theme: ‘The meaning of water in Griffith and the city’s cultural diversity.’  

World-class art, carved from large blocks of granite will become a permanent part of the landscape located along Centenary Walk in IOOF Park, adding to the beautiful City Park precinct alongside the Main Canal.  The Sculptures will be officially launched on Friday 5 August as part of Griffith’s 100- year birthday weekend celebrations.
