The exhibition showcases major works by significant Australian artists, some of whom have created sculptures especially for the site.

The campus landscape - open space, rolling hills, lakes and vegetation - is an ideal setting to display large outdoor sculpture. A diverse range of sculptures have been chosen from abstract steel to kinetic and alrge figurative pieces.

The UWS Acquisitive Sculpture Award and Exhibition aims to establish closer links between the University and artists, and engage with the community by providing a valuable educational and cultural resource, as well as enhancing the campus environment for teaching and learning.

This year, for the first time, in the lead up to the launch of the exhibition on 30 April, four sculptures that have previously been finalists of the award will be on display in locations throughout Macarthur.

The Campbelltown Art's Centre will display Clara Hali's 'Coming to Water' (2008 finalist).

The Ingleburn Branch Library of Campbelltown Library Services will display Tim Wetherell's 'Transit of Venus' (2008 finalist).

The Narellan Branch of Camden Library Services will display Anita Larkin's 'Pod' (2006 finalist).

The Wollondilly Visitors Centre will display Cassandra Hard Lawrie's 'Origins' (2008 finalist).
