Established to raise money for Women’s Refuge New Zealand, NZ Sculpture OnShore has become the largest outdoor sculpture exhibition in the country, showcasing work from both established and emerging New Zealand artists at the magnificent cliff-top Fort Takapuna Reserve in Devonport.
To date, over $1.34 million dollars has been donated to Women’s Refuge. In 2012 alone, a cheque for $110,000 was presented – providing seed funding for the Yellow Belle project which Hesketh Henry also supports.
At the cheque presentation event, NZ Sculpture OnShore Chair Sue Harvey acknowledged the contribution made by Hesketh Henry:
The board wishes to thank Hesketh Henry and its other generous sponsors and supporters, the inspirational artists who invest considerably in this iconic event and all the dedicated and passionate volunteers who give tirelessly and enthusiastically to make NZ Sculpture OnShore a magnificent event for all Aucklanders.
The tenth biennial NZ Sculpture OnShore exhibition will take place between 6-16 November 2014, at Fort Takapuna Reserve, Devonport.
