New Public Art database launched

A new art register detailing hundreds of 20th century artworks located between Northland and Southland has been launched.

The project, by the Public Art Heritage Aotearoa NZ research initiative based at Massey University’s Wellington headquarters, was launched on Monday night at Parliament at a gathering hosted by Arts Minister Carmel Sepuloni.

The website,, is a New Zealand first and provides a single space for researchers, artists, tourists, authorities and the public to learn about 380 artworks in the register that either are, or have previously been, publicly accessible.
