WA International Stone Sculpture Symposium

Artists in Action!

Six raw WA stone blocks will be transformed into six public sculptures by world class international and local artists within the 16 days at the Attadale Reserve, City of Melville. 

The development of the sculptures will be done in an open space for everyone to enjoy, from the conception, creation to installation. The public will be invited to freely observe throughout the event, this is a rare chance for the public to see how stone sculptures are created from the raw block of stones to the finished public art.
