Alcoa’s metal goes beachside
At this year’s Sculpture by the Sea exhibition, co-partnered by Alcoa, 11 artists used aluminium in their creations, four being made entirely of our amazing metal.
In addition, some 1,300 WA students benefited from this year’s Sculpture by the Sea Alcoa Education Program. The Alcoa-funded program enabled hundreds of school children to participate in workshops with contemporary artists.  Children came from across the communities in which we operate, and the Perth metro area, to experience art and aluminium beach side.
Alcoa’s Managing Director Alan Cransberg said a key aspect of Alcoa’s approach to sustainability is partnering with communities.
“We invited schools from around our sites to participate in the program because we believe broad community access to the arts is essential,” he said.
As a gift to the residents of the Town of Kwinana, Alcoa purchased the aluminium sculpture ‘time frame’ by Western Australian artist Derek Roach.
Kwinana Community Relations Officer Linda Garner said: “Continuing to give back to the communities in which we operate is of paramount importance to Alcoa.”
