We are a footy mad town and in honour of the sacred game, we are holding an exhibition as part of the SALA festival featuring the iconic Sherrin footy.
Over 50 established and emerging South Australian artists including painters and sculptors have worked solely or along with a personality or footy legend to interpret and pay tribute to the Sherrin, transforming an actual football it into an iconic piece of art.
All of the one of kind pieces (footballs) will be available for purchase on the opening night (register below) and will be signed by the artist and personality or footy legend making them the most unique footy memorabilia you will come across.

The exhibition’s theme of transformation reflects the transformation that young people undergo as part of the Youth Opportunities Personal Leadership Program and the sale of the balls will raise much needed funds to support our programs.
All footy’s will be available for viewing at Plant 4 after opening night until August 31st
Please register for opening night as limited places are available. On the night you will be able to purchase the footballs along with food and drinks from Plant 4 stalls.
