Mildura Arts Centre

Sculpture Park

A series of important contemporary art events primarily known as the Mildura Sculpture Triennials took place between 1961 and 1988. 
Beginning in 1961 as the Mildura Prize for Sculpture, the Mildura Sculpture Triennials (as they were later known), was the first event to promote and encourage large scale contemporary sculpture, site-specific installations and performance art in Australia and was quite unique in the history of Australian Art.
The inheritance of these events is a significant number of substantial public sculptures in and around Mildura, including the Mildura Arts Centre lawns. 

We currently have twelve sculptures in the Mildura Arts Centre Sculpture Park including Ron Robertson-Swann's Beethoven, Simon Hopkinson and Gary Willis's Work - Art and John Robinson's Mortality
