SWELL Sculpture Festival at Currumbin Beach on the Gold Coast was the destination for a group of Doug Hall Foundation students for their end-of-term excursion in September.
The group enjoyed a day at the beach – complete with a picnic and ice cream – and were inspired by the 51 sculptures lining the shores.
Pictured are Kooki, Darimah, Chloe and Elizabeth at the sculpture ‘Love Birds’ – a large replica of a Satin Bowerbird’s nest.
The male bowerbird builds the nest and decorates it with blue trinkets to attract a mate. Here, the artist, Miles Allen, asks the spectators to write a loving message on a piece of blue plastic and attach it to the nest – a joyful way to spread some love!
