Join us for a sculpture trail to explore a range of public sculptures around the Gallery, in Civic Square and on the City to Sea Bridge. Listen to the legend of Ngāke and Whataitai, and go on a te reo Māori treasure hunt to find shapes/auaha and symbols/tohu.  Look at materials and techniques and consider the context of the surrounding environment. A great tour to discover the stories behind some iconic sculptures, revealing local history and Māori legends from Wellington/Te Whanganui-ā-Tara.
