The Harbourview Sculpture Trail is a journey of discovery, showcasing a wide range of sculpture and outdoor art in a unique setting. Reflecting on the rich local history and natural environment of the salt marshes surrounding Te Atatu Peninsula, the exhibition is set against stunning views down the Waitemata to the Auckland Harbour Bridge and beyond.
Now in its third season, the Harbourview Sculpture Trail is an anticipated biennial event on the Auckland arts calendar, positioned to alternate with headland Sculpture on the Gulf (Waiheke) and NZ Sculpture OnShore (North Shore).
For 2016, the Trail will remain open over the twilight hours every Friday & Saturday evenings with last entries at 7.30pm. Gourmet food trucks and roving entertainment will be onsite from 5pm on these special days. A picturesque spot to meet friends and family for dinner and enjoy the last of the summer evenings.
Everyday onsite activities include an interactive Kid’s Creation Station presented in partnership with Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery, a pop-up Art Shop, the Schools Art Pathway and the opportunity to vote in the People’s Choice Award, proudly sponsored by Ray White Te Atatu.
Public curator tours run every Monday and Saturday at 10am and 1pm – all welcome. There is no extra charge or booking required to join a public curator tour. Private curator tours run every Monday and Saturday at 11.30am and 3pm and can be booked by arrangement by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Harbourview Sculpture Trail is the flagship activity of the registered charity Peninsula Arts Inc. Funds raised from the Harbourview Sculpture Trail are committed to the sustainability of the event and also support Peninsula Arts Inc.’s vision for a vibrant and creative community in which the arts are celebrated as integral and essential to daily life.
