Annual Lake Light Sculpture in Jindabyne

When: 19 - 22nd April

Where: Lake Jindabyne Foreshore

Time: Sunset to 10pm

Lake Light Sculpture is an annual outdoor sculpture exhibition and competition held along the stunning foreshore of Lake Jindabyne. Illumination has, since the festivals inception, been a defining element of Lake Light Sculpture, and the sculptures are lit from sunset to 10pm each evening. Artists embed lighting, reflection and optical tricks into their sculptures to play on the light of Easter's full moon. The effect is dramatic, transforming the already interesting sculptures and revealing hidden elements. It's an ideal time to bundle up against the Autumn chill and experience Jindabyne.

Artists of every caliber - including professionals, experienced and emerging artists, community groups, and local tradesmen - participate in the event. Previous years prizes have included a sculpture residency at the Australian National University, the coveted People's Choice Award, and the Illumination Award for the sculpture that best lights up the star-strewn night.
