Greeneries of the McClelland Sculpture Park

“Let’s find some beautiful place to get Lost.” – unknown

The McClelland Gallery & Sculpture Park is located in the outer Melbourne suburb of Frankston in Victoria. You can find about hundreds of sculptures set in its sprawling greeneries and natural surroundings. Hubby took me there last Mother’s Day!

____________________________

The McClelland story began in the 1930s when Harry McClelland, painter and bohème, purchased eight hectares of bushland in Langwarrin and built a studio for himself to paint and enjoy nature. Upon the death of his sister Nan McClelland in 1961, it was her wish that Harry’s studio and land become a place for arts and culture to be enjoyed by all and in 1971 the McClelland Gallery was built.  

McClelland has since evolved into the home of Australian sculpture with a collection of over 100 outdoor sculptures, 3000 artworks, quarterly exhibitions, dynamic education and public programs, with a unique gift shop and café focused on highlighting local design and produce from the Mornington Peninsula.

    I love how different each sculpture is. One’s sci-fi fi; many are modern, the one of a woman has a Romantic aura. Thanks for joining!
