Museum of Sydney, Snailovation

This giant snail sculpture is currently located on a bench outside the Museum of Sydney. Snailovation are brightly coloured snails that were created by the Cracking Art Group. They have been installed on city streets and in parks as part of Art and About Sydney, a festival of art in unusual places which runs from 20 September to 20 October 2013. The historic sandstone building in the background is the Chief Secretary’s Building, along Phillip Street.

  1. Sounds a bit like the Grommit trail in Bristol. Glad the snails in my garden are not pink, they send me mad enough as it is.

    1. It's interesting that you mention that. I only found out about that when I showed this photo to a workmate yesterday.

  2. Love it Jim. What a contrast the clean lines of the modern pink snail bench provide to the architecture of the museum.

  9. I've seen cows all around a town, but I have never seen snails. I think that is really cool. I'd love to see them. genie
