Heartland Sculpture Challenge

The most awesome art event is happening in South Canterbury! Currently nine sculptures are being installed on pre-selected sites. Sculptor Henri Stein is directing the event for theADT Aoraki Creative Cluster.

The blurb...
Sculptors have been given $1000 toward the cost of their sculpture and will go into win a people choice award, decided by public vote through texting from the site, and the judges art award. Both winners will receive $10,000 each in prize money from the competition's sponsor Meridian Energy.

The remaining sculpture is auctioned with the sponsor of the site getting the first option to buy it and gift it to the city.

Sculptors/site include:
Russell Beck - Timaru District Council
Rob d'Auvergne -
Patiti Point
Paul Deans - Richard Pearse Airport
Doug Neil
Helm Ruifrok

I will take a drive around the 9 sites to take photographs to post.
