The 2017 Toorak Village Sculpture Exhibition sees the works of 90 contemporary Australian artists displayed in Toorak Village shop windows and on the sidewalks. The sculptures are made from mediums including copper, clay, paper, steel, marble, mosaic, bronze, wood and found objects.

Joining these new works are the eight permanent sculptures purchased by the Toorak Village businesses from previous shows.
