Patricia Piccinini’s Skywhales: Every heart sings is coming to Maitland! Experience the magic of Skywhale and Skywhalepapa, two hot air balloon sculptures towering at 7 storeys, as they come to life in the glow of sunrise.
Join the pre dawn festivities at this once in a lifetime community event. Bring your blanket and thermos or enjoy a coffee and snack from onsite vendors, then sit back as the pair slowly rise from the ground and, if weather permits, take off across the skies of Maitland.
Tickets are essential. All welcome.
Presented by Maitland Regional Art Gallery and Maitland City Council’s Vibrant City team in partnership with the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra. Skywhales: Every heart sings is a National Gallery Touring Event supported by Principal Partner The Naomi Milgrom Foundation and Visions of Australia. This is a Know My Name project.
