Gibbs’ sculpture on show
12 Feb 2013 03:10 pm
Rodney Victim Support is inviting people to visit the Gibbs sculpture farm, on the Kaipara coast, on March 19.
The event is being organised to help raise funds for the service.
Mr Gibbs is one of New Zealand’s leading art collectors. He has been establishing the 404-hectare sculpture park on his Kaipara property since 1991. It is open only by appointment or during specially organised tours.
Among the art works installed are pieces by contemporary artists Daniel Buren, Neil Dawson, Andy Goldsworthy and Anish Kapoor.
Some of the art works are large enough to be seen from satellite images at high magnification. Most of the works have been commissioned specifically for the farm.
All money raised will support North Rodney and Hibiscus Coast Victim Support.
The group helps people impacted by crime, traffic accidents, fire and suicide. There are 25 trained volunteers in the district.
The ticket price is $100 per vehicle, regardless of the number of passengers. Gates will be open between 10am and 11am, and will close at 2pm.
Info: Kay on 422 9902 or Cheryl on 428 0691.
