Sculpture seeking ongoing support

SCULPTURE by the Sea has opened for its ninth year at Cottesloe Beach this week, and for the first time visitors will be asked to donate a gold coin to keep the free event viable.

In 2012, a record 250,000 people attended the event - up 35,000 on the previous year - and similar numbers are expected for this year’s exhibition, which features 71 sculptures.

Despite the event’s popularity, organisers have battled to maintain corporate sponsorship at previous levels.

Sculpture by the Sea founding director David Handley said the exhibition had been doing it tough.
