28 Feb McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery
McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery is Australia’s pre-eminent sculpture park, McClelland aspires to lead the international conversation between art and the natural environment. The Sculpture Park, the largest in Australia, is a mixture of developed garden galleries, landscaped and natural bushland with open grassed areas, lakes and sculpture trails. Over 80 major sculptures are on permanent display in the grounds.
In 2007, The Balnaves Foundation supported the acquisition of eight additional hectares of land effectively doubling the size of the park and cementing its place as a world class sculpture park.
In 2008, The Balnaves Foundation in partnership with Elisabeth Murdoch Sculpture Foundation, acquired Ron Mueck’s Wild Man for permanent display in the park. The Foundation also supported the McClelland Sculpture Survey in 2010, 2012 and 2014.
Since 2016, The Balnaves Foundation has supported the Balnaves Curatorial Internship. The aim of the Internship is to equip a recent graduate in Curatorial studies with hands on training in all aspects of curatorial duties, such as exhibition development and design, collection management, registration, public and education programming, liaising with stakeholders, collectors, artists and galleries as well as developing skills in marketing, writing, editing, grant submissions and the production of publications.
