Australian Sculpture Hunt

April 24, 2015 @ 8:00 am - May 24, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

| Free

To celebrate International Sculpture Day, McClelland is running a month long competition on Instagram that will run from 24 April to 24 May.

Every day we walk or drive past great Australian sculpture in shopping centres, parks, street corners and office lobbies. We want to celebrate and reveal these works that are often hidden in plain sight.

We’ve partnered with one of the great hotels of the world, the Hotel Windsor, who will host special works from our collection during the competition and cross promote it via social media.

– Tag @McClellandGallery #sculpturehunt so we can keep a tally
– If you post the most images you win a night in luxury at the Hotel Windsor in Melbourne!
– Last images to be posted by 5pm 24 May 2015 and competition opens 8am on 24 April.
