Take a tour of the sculpture symposium and meet the artists.

This summer Te Kupenga Stone Sculpture Symposium returns to New Plymouth’s Coastal Walkway, showcasing the talent of local, national and international stone sculptors.

Join a Govett-Brewster staff member for a touch and audiodescribed tour and get a real sense of how these magnificent andesite boulders are transformed into artworks. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet some of the artists behind these impressive stone carvings. No knowledge of art is needed.

This event is especially for visually impaired audiences and is kindly sponsored by Fitzroy Optometrists & Opticians.
