  • Website: http://www.sculptureinthegardens.nz/Inspired by the sweeping lawns, cool lakes, bright perennials and scented roses of Auckland Botanic Gardens, 22 sculptors will present fresh new works in November at the start of the 2017 Sculpture in the Gardens exhibition.This year we are celebrating 10 years of Sculpture in the Gardens. Over past exhibitions the Friends of the Auckland Botanic Gardens have acquired works to add to their growing permanent sculpture collection. Much loved sculptures such as Llew Summers’ Butterfly, Peter Lange’s Campsite, and Bing Dawe’s Tuna now adorn the Garden and are a magnet for children and adults alike. “It is a distinctive bit of place making,” says Dianne Glenn, President of the Friends. “We are proud to be growing the reputation of the Gardens and promoting the creativity of New Zealand’s sculptors.”

    Artists selected for this year’s exhibition are up for two awards:

    The $10,000 McConnell Family Supreme Award – chosen by the Curatorial Panel and announced at exhibition start on.
    The People’s Choice Award – chosen by votes from visitors and announced at the exhibition end.
    Visitors can enjoy the Sculpture in the Gardens exhibition throughout summer, it runs from 11 November 2017 to 25 February 2018. Entry is free.
