NZ Sculpture OnShore Returns 3rd-18th November 2018
Following the overwhelming popularity of the last NZ Sculpture OnShore, this iconic North Shore event will return to Devonport for an extended three-week exhibition in November 2018. The stunning Devonport clifftop site will once again be transformed into NZ’s largest sculpture park, featuring over 80 sculptures by artists from across Aotearoa.
The 2018 exhibition sees the return of curators, Anna Hanson and Ross Liew. In 2016, the dynamic duo brought us the largest sculpture installation in our event’s history- 10,000 windmills, a visually spectacular creation by Bernie Harfleet and Donna Turtle Sarten entitled, “Max and Bella and Friends”. The piece received rave reviews from the public and arts enthusiasts alike, and we look forward to seeing how these very talented colleagues will delight and engage our fast growing audience again in 2018.”
NZ Sculpture OnShore has a strong focus on nurturing and inspiring young New Zealanders to develop a passion and appreciation for the arts through our education and children’s programs, making for a great family day out.
Come along and enjoy:
- Sculptures by leading and emerging NZ artists
- Indoor gallery
- Accessibility and inclusion program
- School’s programme
- Historic underground fort
- Children’s sculpture exhibit and adventure trail map
