Sculptures find a new home in southwest Sydney
Set within the Casula Parklands and with the Georges River as its backdrop, the Liverpool Sculpture Walk features ten artworks by Australian and international artists.

The sculpture trail winds along the river and as you follow it you might hear the musical call of the bellbirds and see glimpses of the Georges River through the dense foliage of the river bank. It is an easy walk along a flat path and is less than two kilometres in length to complete the full loop.

If some of the artworks look familiar, it is because they have come from Sculpture by the Sea, the majority being exhibited at Sculpture by the Sea Bondi 2019, before making this new setting their home until August 2020.

Exhibiting artists include David Ball, Cui Yi, Matthew Harding, Nadia Odlum, Tetsuro Yamasaki, Morgan Jones, Denise Pepper, Naomi Taylor Royds, Greg Johns and Paul Selwood. The large scale artworks reference a variety of themes such as nature, the relationship between light and time, the future and the language of form and have been constructed using materials such as corten steel, stainless steel, aluminium and glass.

The best starting point for the walk is from the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre. There is a free guide available from the front desk at the Arts Centre which indicates the position of each sculpture, their titles and the artist names.. You will also find this information on a plaque at each sculpture location.

The Sculpture Walk ends near the Casula Parklands Adventure Playground where you can enjoy some recreational fun in the playground, on the ninja and fitness circuit, or if you've brought your canine friend, in the off-leash dog park. There are also water stations and toilet facilities at the playground.

These works will be on display until late August 2020.
