This magical sculpture walk is pulling out all the stops.
With Sydney Solstice around the corner and Vivid still a fair bit away, winter festivals and events have been popping up around town. Bondi Festival promises to be a hoot with a giant ferris wheel and pop-up trucks and The Winter Village is set to transform Parramatta into a winter wonderland in July. Adding to the illustrious list is the NOX Night Sculpture Walk. (Featured image: Randwick City Council.)
Students and artistes from UNSW Art & Design are gearing up to transform the Randwick Environmental Park into a glowing illuminated outdoor gallery. For three nights from May 14 to May 16, you can experience innovative artworks which will be installed around the park to form a charming 1.5km lit-up loop walk starting and ending at the Randwick Community Centre. The park will be flooded with light from artworks that are powered by renewable energy sources.
Additionally, you can make a night of it and stay back for the NOX Night Cinema. Students from UNSW School of Arts and Media will be screening short films and animations at the event.
You can take a breather from all the walking by heading to the food trucks and bar. Some seriously great eats and drinks are on offer right from our favourite Gelato Messina to a delightful Brazilian barbecue by Barbicrew. You can also head over to BIG Dave’s Chipper Van for some authentic Irish treats or Algae Fine Food for some vegan options. Gin distillers Archie Rose will help you get your drink on with heaps of drink options. There’s something for everyone and the ambience of the glowing sculptures around and crisp open air only add to the overall experience.
The Sculpture Walk is organised from 6pm-8pm and live entertainment is set to be announced soon.
Where: Randwick Environmental Park, 27 Munda Street (off Hendy Ave, off Bundock St), Randwick
