City Gallery Wellington Foundation

Building a Strong Foundation for Art in Wellington

City Gallery Wellington Foundation patrons are a special group committed to helping make City Gallery one of New Zealand’s most stimulating and accessible contemporary art experiences. Patrons believe in the power of art to enrich and inspire lives and are passionate about contributing to the vibrant cultural life of Wellington.
