Sculpture By The Sea – By TravelScoot
Updated: Mar 18
Cottesloe, Perth, Western Australia
What a fabulous experience to spend the morning at Cottesloe’s Sculpture by the Sea and move around with ease on the TravelScoot !
Thanks to the Access and Inclusion Programme, special matting on the sand has been installed for 3 days, enabling visitors with limited mobility or using wheelchairs and mobility scooters to get amongst the sculptures on the beach area. This matting meant I could scoot along with my friend as we wove our way across the sand to view the likes of “Homer Homer” and peek inside “Urban Containment” near the sandy shore.
Paving throughout the grassed areas, made for smooth riding, allowing us plenty of time to ponder the peaceful, curious and often powerful sculptures under the trees. The new extra wide front wheel on the TravelScoot allowed me to ride across the grass and wood chips with ease to give me a close view of this wonderful art.
The artwork extends all the way along to the end groyne, passing the impressive large black emperors keeping watch from across the water over the beautiful exhibits on the sand
Our final stop was to enjoy a coffee overlooking the beach and soak up the atmosphere from people of all ages exploring the sculptures.
The 2020 Sculpture by the Sea is showcasing 70 pieces from 17 countries and there are a number of ways to enjoy it. You can wander around at your own pace with friends or family, attend an artist talk, or join one of DADAA’s Tactile Tours. Details can be found at https://sculpturebythesea.com/cottesloe/
