Art tour at Parliament (ii)

Friday 28 October 2016, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm



In response to popular demand, we are pleased to offer members another opportunity to enjoy an evening tour of art at Parliament.

In 90 minutes we will see work by some of New Zealand’s most significant artists including Colin McCahon, Frances Hodgkins, Ralph Hotere, Melvin Day, Cliff Whiting, Susan Skerman, Para Matchett, Fatu Feu’u and Robyn Kahukiwa. A highlight will be a viewing of work by John Drawbridge and his family in Parliament’s exhibition space located in Bowen House.

We will also walk into the fine interiors of several themed rooms and see a diverse mix of art and objects from the Parliamentary Collection.

The evening will commence with a drink at Parliament’s own Pickwick’s Bar.  After this our bags, phones and cameras will be checked in by Security and the tour will begin.  (All visitors to Parliament have to come through the Parliamentary Service security screening process.)

NB: Comfortable shoes are advisable as we will be visiting several buildings and using stairs. There is no seating provided.

Members and non-members $20 (includes a glass of wine or juice)
