Hospice West Auckland is a non profit organisation providing specialist palliative care at no cost to terminally ill patients and their families. Each year, Hospice requires donations to continue to provide this specialist care. This year, the Te Atatu Business Association is bringing the community a new Hospice fundraiser, The Harbourview Sculpture Trail.
The Harbourview Sculpture Trail is a feast of art, featuring 45 unique pieces of work from 35 artists. Each of the pieces on the trail has been selected for its connection to the rich history of the local area. There is a mix of different mediums used including wood, ceramic, glass, metal and water-based art works. Each of the pieces will be set along the trail across the water, enhancing the outlook across the Peninsula to the bright lights of the central city. Alongside these works will be small works and murals from local schools, providing the trail with a truly community feel.
A special Hospice West Auckland sculpture created by patients and families will welcome visitors.
As well as viewing the art, there will be opportunities to learn more about what is on display. The exhibition’s curator, Sally Lush, will be giving tours which feature talks from selected artists who will talk more about the meaning behind their piece. These tours will be held on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 11am, throughout the three weeks of the exhibition. As well as tours and talks for adults, kids are also encouraged to learn more about the pieces with fun activity sheets.
Ticket Prices: Adults $10, Children up to the age of 12 are $5 and under 5s are free. A family pass is available at $30. All proceeds from the trail are being donated to Hospice West Auckland.
