PRESS RELEASE: LAKE LIGHT SCULPTURE: STREET EDITION 2023
Lake Light Sculpture Inc. is thrilled to announce Lake Light Sculpture will return to the spectacular mountain surrounds of Jindabyne in 2023, from 6 April – 9 April 2023, with an exciting twist.
Snowy Monaro’s largest dedicated arts festival will return to delight the local community and visitors, with over 25,000 attendees expected across the Easter long weekend. Lake Light Sculpture: Street Edition will embrace the views and vistas of Lake Jindabyne from a different angle, from the streets of Jindabyne itself. Sculptors will be encouraged to connect people, art and place by creating new experiences through their art.
Following the cancellation of the 2022 event, Lake Light Sculpture Inc. have embraced the unknown and planned around the potential impact of Lake Jindabyne Levels. The 2023 festival aims to help visitors and residents alike reimagine the natural landscape and town streetscape by installing sculptures in new and unusual spaces. Although the event will be unpowered, artists with solar powered lighting elements are encouraged to participate.
Cherie McNair, Chair of Lake Light Sculpture Inc, said “It’s great to return to programming this fantastic event for the region. The Committee has a strong commitment to supporting our artists and we want to give them the best backdrop the region can offer. The 2023 event will be something new and unique in its approach.”
Lake Light Sculpture is a platform for emerging, mid-career and professional artists alike. The event significantly contributes to the arts and cultural footprint of the Snowy Monaro Region and contributes to driving economic development and social change.
The Committee will be calling for entries and volunteers very soon – keep an eye on social channels for more information.
