Aucklanders and visitors to the city can now enjoy a new outdoor gallery featuring world-class works from 11 New Zealand artists thanks to a major transformation project at Auckland Airport.

Auckland Airport Outdoor Gallery offers a diverse range of sculptures from some of New Zealand’s most established artists, as well as up-and-coming talent, including; Aaron McConchie, Aiko Groot, Jeff Thomson, Greer Twiss, Graham Bennett, Terry Stringer, Fatu Feu’u, David McCracken, Fletcher Vaughan, Gregor Kregar and Phil Price.

The open air gallery is set in landscaped grounds around a wetlands area in the Esplanade (an open space adjacent to the historic Abbeville Estate function venue and the Airport Shopping Centre on George Bolt Memorial Drive). Visitors can view the sculptures from walkways and get additional information about the work and artist by scanning a QR code.

The Outdoor Gallery will be free of charge and open to the public seven days a week.
