Take a peek at ’s open-air exhibition Sculpture by the Sea

BY SHANNON CONNELLAN From Mashable

Burger bait. A cavalcade of charging horses. A plastic bubble paradise. They’re all sitting on the coastline of Australia.

Every year, the two-kilometre coastal walk from ’s Bondi Beach to Tamarama becomes an open-air gallery for the celebrated Sculpture by the Sea exhibition, with selected artists invited to install sculptural works along the shoreline for three weeks in spring.

Started in 1997 and now featuring 100 works every year, it’s one of Australia’s most popular, free, annual events, attracting half a million visitors in 2016.

Running Oct. 19 to Nov. 5, this year’s exhibition is a highly abstract show, with a few cheeky works along the way. This year, Australian sculptor David Ball took out the exhibition’s A$60,000 ($47,154) prize for his steel work titled Orb.
