Join us in April for an exclusive group visit to Gibbs Farm, the internationally renowned sculpture collection on the Kaipara Harbour, and help support the Te Tuhi Commissioning Fund.
Usually available to visit only by special appointment, the Farm hosts a remarkable array of large-scale sculptures by artists including Chris Booth, Daniel Buren, Bill Culbert, Neil Dawson, Marijke de Goey, Andy Goldsworthy, Ralph Hotere, Sol LeWitt, Anish Kapoor, Len Lye, Tony Oursler, Peter Roche, Richard Serra and Leon van den Eijkel.
This will be a fantastic day out – an incredible chance to see contemporary sculpture in the landscape alongside expert guides Jeff Thomson, Dr. Peter Shand, Kelly Carmichael, and great company. Tickets are $60 and all proceeds will go towards the Te Tuhi Commissioning Fund, dedicated to supporting artists to create ambitious new work.
Get a group together and join us at Gibbs Farm!
Gibbs Farm is a private property, open by prior appointment only on scheduled monthly visitor days. No entry fee is applicable when visiting Gibbs Farm by appointment; the Trustees of Gibbs Farm have generously allowed us to arrange this event as an important fundraiser to support Te Tuhi.
