The Tree of Life now permanently at McClelland
Jul 1, 2015

This fabulous kinetic work by Phil Price, which was on the Cranbourne Road site adjacent to the Peninsula Link, has moved to its new home at McClelland. Come and see the Tree of Life here, along with over 100 superb sculptures in the grounds of the McClelland Sculpture Park - entrance by donation.

The Tree of Life is the first changeover in a program of biennial commissions that will alternate between two sites, one on Cranbourne Road, the other near Skye Road, both adjacent to Peninsula Link freeway.

These sculptures are commissioned and owned by McClelland, through funds donated by Southern Way. This public/private partnership, The Southern Way McClelland Sculpture Commissions, will continue until 2037 resulting in 14 major sculptures displayed over the 25 year duration of the series.

The new work now installed at the Cranbourne site is Gregor Kregar’s Reflective Lullaby, a happily upsized garden gnome who acts as a guardian of suburbia.
