City Public Sculpture Tours
A public art walking tour with Mark Holsworth, author of Sculptures of Melbourne. Public sculpture in Melbourne has changed dramatically, not only in style but in materials, locations and numbers. Public sculpture both decorates and tells the history of the city. See a selection of sculptures from 18th to the 21st century, from the historic to the comic, from memorials to the play sculpture. Learn about the sculptures, the sculptors who made them and the people of Melbourne who live with the sculptures.
