The Toorak Village Sculpture Exhibition is the most innovative and important annual event to take place in the Toorak Village, where we link the arts with business to form a unique cultural experience. During the entire month of May and first 2 weeks of June, we exhibit contemporary sculptural works in the shop windows and on the sidewalks of Toorak Road.
2019 will be the 18th year of the exhibition where Australian artists will display their sculptures in Toorak Village shop windows, arcades and along the sidewalks of Toorak Road. These will compliment the 10 permanent sculptures purchased by the Toorak Village businesses from previous shows. Presented by the Toorak Village Traders, directed by Tony Fialides and supported by our partners, 4 non acquisitive awards valued at $16,500 was judged and awarded at an opening event on Thursday 2nd May. Winners of this years awards are:
