SCAPE Public Art

The landscape of Christchurch is rich with contemporary public artworks and a driving force behind this is SCAPE Public Art.

The SCAPE Public Art Season 2018 kicks off on 6 October and runs until 17 November and the Arts Centre is a key location for many of the exciting community events. See all the details.

With an established base of public artwork legacy pieces through the central city, the season provides an opportunity to focus on the introduction of new works through a curated exhibition and a wider programme of events.

In addition to the season, SCAPE installs public art all year round, while also maintaining a focus on premier public art events and programmes promoted as an accessible public art walkway.

  • Where: Upstairs in the Registry building, 301 Montreal Street
  • Opening hours: Monday–Friday, 9.30am–5.30pm
