The aim of this exhibition is to acquire one or more sculptural pieces for installation in the township of Neerim South, to enhance and enrich the cultural experience for community and visitors. The Neerim District Community Bank is offering sponsorship to acquire outdoor sculpture to the value of $12,500. In 2024 there will also be a Small sculpture award of $3,000, and a People’s Choice Award of $1000. The liberating theme – ‘’FREE as a BIRD’’, is to challenge sculptors to create visual excitement, wonder, and an expression of freedom.

Neerim South’s collection of public art, is a legacy of the ‘’Neerim Bower – Inspired by Birds’’, Small Town Transformation Arts Grant, from Regional Arts Victoria, awarded in 2013.
