Rookwood's annual Hidden outdoor arts event opens next Sunday, 27th August. The SMH's Arts writer Linda Morris writes art installations ranging from the commemorative to the interpretive have come together for Rookwood Cemetery's annual Sculpture Walk

Forty-two sculptures have been strategically hidden in one of the oldest sections of the largest cemetery in the southern hemisphere, which is also the world's largest Victorian cemetery.

This year artists were called to respond to themes around the site's history and culture, with particular emphasis on remembrance, love, grief, loss, mourning, spirituality, the environment and different cultural beliefs around burial and memorialisation.
