#5. Manukau, Harbour of Stories

1. why was this story made into a mural?

  • This artwork was commissioned in 2012 by Lesley Smith, director of Lopdell House Gallery (now Te Uru ContemporaryGallery) for their art education programme (2013 - 2014).

  • The brief was to explore the many layers of history of the Manukau Harbour.

  • The artwork was to be transportable and inspire art projects while also inspiring children to learn about the history of the harbour and its people.

2. what was the design process (each mural is different)!
