During the height of New Zealand’s summer season, this new public event is happening during the International Sculpture Symposium! Symposium attendees will have another great opportunity to view the best of the best sculpture that New Zealand has to offer ~ right on the waterfront!
From the 1st of February through March, the Wynyard Quarter will be transformed into a sculpture park, hosting the Summer of Sculpture: an installation of contemporary public sculpture.
The event will feature an excellent lineup of Auckland artists showing large-scale works, curated to highlight this new and exciting public space on the waterfront. The outdoor works will utilize all of its surrounding elements such as the gantry, lamp posts, grass and paved areas, leading people from the Plaza, through the Park and around the Silos. The Silos will contain multi media installations by Phil Dadson and Brett Graham and the Rands referencing Paciﬁc/NZ issues. There will also be beautiful carving, cutting edge polymer and exquisite bronze casting.
This installation of contemporary public sculpture is an artist driven project and the brain child of Outdoor Sculpture 2001 Incorporated Society (the group of artists who put together the Domain Millennium Sculpture project) in collaboration with Waterfront Auckland and Heart of the City.
Summer of Sculpture will compliment Waiheke’s Sculpture on the Gulf, occurring a week before the Wynyard Quarter event (Jan 25th – Feb 17th). Take advantage of this wonderful experience during the International Sculpture Symposium to view more great work at the fabulous Wynyard Quarter.
