"Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities..."
‘This proposal for a world class sculpture trail is big, I admit, but as suggested by the quote above... “Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities”. AND SO it would seem pertinent... that the town of Forbes and its people in the surrounding district embrace the concept and join forces to create a sculptural hub that does us proud.’ Rosie Wingrove Johnston | 2012
Sculpture down the Lachlan trail (SDL) commenced in the centre of town with the successful launch in 2014. It will continue around the lake and extend along the Lachlan River between Forbes and Condobolin. It will be complementary to other large attractions in the Central West including Taronga Western Plains Zoo (Dubbo), The Dish - CSIRO Radio Telescope (Parkes), Forbes Central West Livestock Exchange, ‘Utes in the Paddock’ (Ootha) and the Eugowra murals.
The success of the ‘Sculpture by the Sea’ exhibition has demonstrated that people are keen to see high quality sculptures. A permanent trail of this magnitude and significance is ideally located at Forbes in the central west, which is on the Newell Highway, a main arterial highway running between Melbourne and Brisbane.
