Condobolin’s popular Utes in the Paddock has been named 2020 Best Sculpture Park or Trail at the Australian Street Art Awards.
The national awards were announced on the Gold Coast, QLD, in March 2021.
This new category is for a collection of original 3D pieces which are promoted together as an experience in a park, outdoor gallery, garden or along a short or long trail. This includes mobile or movable art relocated on a regular basis. The pieces must be on view to the public and does NOT need to be sculpture in its traditional form – it can include any 3D artwork, including works created by the community.
Utes in the Paddock are a series of old Holden utes painted by prominent Australian and local artists. They’re located on Lachlan Valley Way near the intersection with The Gipps Way outside of Condobolin.
