Rita Angus Mural Postponed
7 DAYS AGO
Thanks to good people like yourselves we had hoped that there
would be a big tribute mural to the amazing New Zealand
artist, Rita Angus, gracing the wall of the Dominion Building in
downtown Wellington by now. But sadly once again we have run into a
problem outside of our control.
The big November earthquake of 2016 meant we weren't able to
paint the mural in early 2017 as originally planned. Now, just as
we were all set to start the mural on the 1st of February 2018, we
receive news that our expert giant portrait painter, Irony,
cannot come to New Zealand as planned due to serious family
After almost two years work on trying to make this project
happen we are loathe to give up, and are looking for alternative
artists from both New Zealand and overseas who might be able to
complete the commission this year or early in 2019.
Thank you very much for your patience and your support and we
will keep posting updates on this page as soon as we have any
further news. (Bruce Mahalski - for Rita Angus Mural Project).
