The 14th annual Sculpture Walk will be held at Heathcote Cultural Precinct from Saturday, 19th March to Sunday, 3rd April 2016.

This family-friendly event will see the Heathcote Cultural Precinct transform into an outdoor gallery for the City of Melville Sculpture Walk 2016.

Over two weeks this Autumn, you and your family will be invited to view the beautiful display of 26 sculptures and installations, each passionately created by talented West Australian artists, Central TAFE students and local schools. The exhibition is curated by experienced Outdoor Exhibition Curator Lyn DiCiero.

You are welcome to visit the exhibition at anytime of the day, 7 days a week - it is FREE to view. The 600m walk will also include other attractions such as heritage buildings, picturesque grounds and city views of Point Heathcote Reserve.

You can also vote for your favourite sculpture in the People's Choice Award and go in the running to win one of four $50 BWG Steakhouse Vouchers.
