McClellan SCULPTURE PARK+GALLERY is a significant modernist gallery and known as the home of Australian sculpture, situated 45 minutes from Melbourne at the gateway to the Mornington Peninsula. The gallery holds a diverse permanent collection of more than 2,600 works, while the sculpture park comprises eight hectares of designed landscape and vast areas of indigenous bushland housing more than 100 large-scale sculptures.
McClelland’s exhibition program focuses on the development of modern sculpture and contemporary spatial practice, and encourages artists to address challenging environmental, social and cultural issues current in an Australian and global context.
McClelland is a not-for-profit organisation and relies on donations and philanthropic support to sustain its operations.
Visitor support and generosity enables McClelland to continue to champion the experience of art in the natural environment, present contemporary exhibitions, preserve its collection, maintain the grounds and continue its education and public programs.
McClelland holds numerous awards in the mediums of sculpture, drawing, watercolour and ceramics, with funds generously provided by the Elisabeth Murdoch Sculpture Fund, the Fornari Bequest, artist Rick Amor, Mary and Lou Senini, and a private donor.
