Sculp­ture by the Sea cer­tainty

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

PRIZED Cottes­loe Beach event Sculp­ture by the Sea has been re­tained un­til 2020.

The State Gov­ern­ment an­nounced it had signed a new deal with organisers, with events or­gan­ised for next year , 2019 and 2020.

With more than 200,000 vis­i­tors in March, Tourism Min­is­ter Paul Pa­palia said the free event had trans­formed Cottes­loe Beach into an im­pres­sive out­door art gallery.

“The ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures lo­cal, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional artists, set in a stun­ning coastal lo­ca­tion, which helps to raise the event pro­file and po­si­tion WA as an at­trac­tive cul­tural des­ti­na­tion,” he said.

“Events like Sculp­ture by the Sea are im­por­tant be­cause they add to the state’s vi­brancy and help at­tract vis­i­tors, which pro­vides an im­por­tant boost to the econ­omy.”

De­tails of the deal were scarce, with the fig­ure de­scribed as “com­mer­cial in con­fi­dence”.
