The vision of this project is to turn Penang into a ‘Sculpture Island’. Well-known international Malaysian and Asian sculptors will be invited to contribute towards making this dream a reality. These Asian artists will lend their expertise and time pro bono to create one sculptured art piece each which will then be displayed at appropriate sites on the island of Penang.
The Penang Sculpture Trail is a joint community-driven effort working towards the vision of a more aesthetically pleasing Penang through the display of world class sculptures in public accessible areas of Penang. The project is spearheaded by 'Friends of Penang Earth Group' under the auspices of both the Municipal Council of Penang and the Penang Museum & Art Gallery.
