Our Sculpture is fully funded!!!
A public meeting of Milang residents in October 2015 voted to support a program to raise funds to finance an international sculpture to create a special sculpture for Milang.
On the 18th November 2015 the Management Committee of the Milang and District Community Association appointed a sub-committee (The Milang Sculpture Group) to engage with the community and raise funds for the Sculpture.
The Alexandrina Council generously donated $10,000 towards the cost which will be a total of $30,000. The community needed to raise a further $20,000. (Estimates of the market value of the works already installed range from $50,000 to $90,000.
The Symposium has finished and the amazing Sculpture for Milang, “Running With the Wind” by Gheorghi Filin, completed. The installation of the Sculpture on the Milang Foreshore will begin later this year.
Adelaide Hills International Sculpture Symposium Inc.
The successful inaugural Adelaide Hills International Sculpture Symposium in 2012 created 8 significant sculptures which are now permanently installed in various Hills and Fleurieu Peninsular communities as part of the Hills Sculpture Trail. Another 8 unique sculptures were commissioned for the 2014 Symposium and will all be added to the trail by early 2015.
The third and final event is planned for April 2016 and will again bring eight internationally acclaimed sculptors to SA to work together for 22 days. The 8 stone sculptures they create will complete the 24 sculptures for permanent installation on the Hills Sculpture Trail and will add significantly to the social, cultural and tourism infrastructure of the region.
Enrich our Community With a Sculpture
A sculpture from this program will attract many visitors who will want to follow the Hills Sculpture Trail and come to Milang to view our unique sculpture.
It will put Milang on the map and mean a great deal for local business. Mount Compass who commissioned a sculpture earlier this year has seen their visitor numbers increase significantly.
Donations large and small were accepted from Community members and Local Businesses. Major donors ($500 or greater) and donors ($100 or greater) will be recognised at the sculpture site. Major donors will also be listed in all Project literature.
