Sculpture is an integral part of life at Montalto and a highlight of any visit to the estate. The Sculpture Trail winds its way through the property and the beautiful natural gallery provides diverse settings for our pieces. You might find monumental works sited in open spaces through to more intimate pieces amongst the wetlands and vines.
The Sculpture Trail takes in 30+ permanent collection, joined from February through to end of August by the annual Montalto Sculpture Prize Exhibition of Finalists.
The Montalto Sculpture Prize in 2019 is a $40,000 acquisitive award. 2019 will be the 17th year, it is much-loved part of the Montalto calendar and designed to encourage artistic pursuit in a public forum.
VISITING THE SCULPTURE
The grounds at Montalto are open daily between 11am – 5pm. We recommend allowing one hour to enjoy the Sculpture Trail across the estate.
The trail is approx 1km and suitable for most ages and abilities. It meanders over grassy lawns and gravel pathways, through vines and wetland boardwalks. The grounds are undulating and reasonably steep in sections.
All sculptures that form the Montalto Sculpture Prize are for sale.
