The Rocks is coming to life with colour and creativity thanks to a series of intriguing installations by local artists, curated by Art Pharmacy. 

Each of the artists was asked to respond to and explore the central themes of revival and renewal as we emerge from Covid. The result is a series of installations that are unique and create a new way to see The Rocks – uncovering new stories, old stories, a new perspective on a well known location, and a sense of play and adventure.

Visit The Rocks to experience these immersive art works, and gain a new perspective on one of Sydney’s best loved and most historic sites.
