Sculpture By The Sea (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Featuring 100 sculptures by artists from across the globe, Sculpture By The Sea is an enormous outdoor sculpture exhibition spread over a 1.2 mile coastal walk from Bondi to Tamarama beach in Sydney, Australia.

From Simon McGrath's faucet sculpture "Who left the tap running?" to John Fitzmaurice "Make A Wish," the offbeat creations can raise eyebrows, inspire and even make you laugh.

The brainchild of founding director David Handley, the project has been running since 1997.

Though Sydney just wrapped up its exhibition for the year, the next exhibition, to be held on Cottesloe Beach in Perth, is already in the works for March of 2012.

Check out the below slideshow featuring a selection from this year's Sculpture By The Sea highlights.
