Sculpture by the Sea - Århus 2009

In 2000 a young Dane visited Sculpture by the Sea at Bondi Beach in Australia with his new Tasmanian girlfriend. He was inspired and dreamed about bringing the exhibition (and the girlfriend) to Denmark. The two people are now known as HRH Crown Prince Frederik and HRH Crown Princess Mary - and on the 5th of june 2009 they could open the exhibiton at the beaches south af Århus - with 60 sculptures, made by artist from Austalia, Denmark and several other countries, placed in the middle of the nature: on the beach, in the water and in the forest.
