Some Capital Characters

Thursday 16 July 2015, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

$10.00 – $15.00

Some Capital Characters commemorates Wellington’s 150th year as the capital with a unique and entertaining look at the city and its people from 1865 to the present, through the medium of portraiture.

No other exhibition has ever presented such a range of Wellingtonians. The aim is not to show off a famous 50 or an objectively defined ‘Makers of Wellington’, although it certainly includes many of those. Rather, it introduces the city through a selection of the well-known and the obscure, the infamous as well as the famous.

Join Curator David Colquhoun in a tour of an exhibition that will ensure you leave knowing a lot more about Wellington’s lively history.

Registration required. To register, use the ‘Book now’ button or phone the office on (04) 381 7051.
