Yesterday, Friday Jan 27th was the start of headland Sculpture On The Gulf on Waiheke Island. I headed out last night, as the sun was starting to set, to check out all the cool sculptures, 35 of them, on this 2km long walk along the coast. It was a gorgeous night and I can highly recommend for everyone to head out and do this, it is great for families and dogs too!

Guided by terrain and place, both highly respected senior and more recently established New Zealand artists has transformed a two kilometre section of headland from Church Bay towards Te Atawhai Whenua Reserve and Matiatia with ambitious and striking art works.

More info about it here. And check out their website for more details and how to get there. It is on every day until February 19th.

Not considered an art work but rather a piece of architecture. Whichever it is, it is stunning..
