Art & Nature Elevated
Since February 2003, in a much – loved biennial exhibition, Maitiatia Coastal Walkway on Waiheke Island is transformed into an artscape like no other. An acclaimed collection of distinctive contemporary landscape sculptures dress an iconic headland, as if in a stunning cloak of art.
First held in 2003, the aim of the exhibition was to create the very best outdoor sculpture exhibition in New Zealand and to make Waiheke Island a world renowned destination.
The works were to be new, unexpected, daring, original and never before seen. As well as being complementary to the unique and spectacular location. Thousands of visitors ranging from art lovers to fun lovers, flock to experience this potent mix of sculpture and landscape. That first exhibition lasted two weeks and attracted some 12,000 visitors to Waiheke Island.
The next Sculpture on the Gulf will be 4 – 20th March 2022.
