LISMORE Regional Gallery has commissioned two of the main artworks at this year's Splendour in the Grass.
After months of work, gallery director Brett Addlington was keen to get to North Byron Parklands to see the projects on site.
The first project is called Get Away From Her You Dick, a 12m high great white shark bursting out of the earth.
The work was conceived by Justin Shoulder and Matt Stegh, collaborating as The Glitter Militia.
The project was presented as "responding to the current political climate where sharks are being baited and culled in Perth despite huge opposition from environmental agencies and the majority of the public".
With a price tag of $10,000, this new artwork was developed and paid for by Splendour.
The second project Lismore Regional Gallery has been involved in is Rumspringer.
Last year, Splendour punters saw a group of people dressed in Amish gear building a barn during the festival.
"The idea was to feature an industrious community among the hedonistic community of the festival, and it was a success because we did not make it clear this was an artistic performance," Mr Addlington said.
The barn is back this year, and revellers can this time walk into it and enjoy artistic performances and music.
Rumspringer will have a total of 120 performers over three days at a cost of $30,000, with funding from Splendour and the Australia Council of the Arts.
With two artworks in this year's festival, Splendour in the Grass is the biggest "out-of-site" project for the Lismore Regional Gallery on the year of its 60th anniversary.
