Well known Parnell identity Peter Bromhead unveiled the first sculpture installed in the new Parnell Sculpture Trail on the 16th October 2013 outside ARTIS Gallery.
This occasion marked the partnership between the Parnell Business Association and Parnell Rotary Club to further enhance Parnell’s reputation as Auckland’s creative quarter.
The first work to be unveiled, Anah Dunsheath’s Before the Byte, was a 2.6 meter high figurative sculpture made in marine grade stainless steel.
The Parnell Sculpture Trail will run the length of Parnell Road and will give both emerging and established New Zealand sculptors the opportunity to exhibit their work in a public space.
The sculpture was unveiled at ARTIS Gallery, 280 Parnell Road, Auckland on Wednesday October 16th at 6:00pm.
