BIG Sculpture @ Veg Out


Deadline:30th August, 2019

BIG Sculpture @ Veg Out is an outdoor sculpture exhibition and competition presented by the Veg Out Community Gardens St Kilda Inc (Veg Out), in association with Mariella Del Conte, and Adrian Spurr (referred to as BIGSculpture@VO).

Veg Out is a not for profit volunteer community organisation that runs a community garden next to Luna Park in St Kilda, Victoria.  The community garden is the site of the exhibition.

Veg Out is the little garden in St Kilda that could.
We are ferociously independent.
We believe in people, plants and purple butterflies
in all of their glorious shapes and sizes.
We are over the moon to be able to
present you with these wonderful sculptures.
This is your patch, enjoy the show.

Rob Taylor

The exhibition is curated by Mariella Del Conte, Adrian Spurr and Robert Taylor (Curators).
