Gibbs Farm

Alan Gibbs is one of New Zealand’s leading art collectors, and since 1991 has been establishing a sprawling 1,000-acre (4.0 km2) sculpture park at Gibbs Farm, which is located on New Zealand’s North Island, 50 km north of Auckland. Gibbs Farm is a private sculpture park, open to artists, educational institution and charities by appointment only.
