McClelland Sculpture Park+Gallery acknowledges the Bunurong people of the South-Eastern Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the lands and waters on which we are placed. We extend our respects to their ancestors and elders past and present, and to all First Nations Peoples.
A Message from the Director
“Art with Nature”, and Well-being
“As successive lockdowns disrupt our lives in countless ways it is important for us all to develop coping strategies to survive and prosper in whatever the new versions of normal may become.
McClelland has introduced a series of virtual and online initiatives designed to ensure that our focus on “art with nature” can play a part in contributing to your personal and community well-being.
I commend these activities to you, encourage you to take part, and look forward to the role that “art with nature” can play in helping make our lives happy, meaningful and enjoyable.
Lisa Byrne, Director, McClelland
