World-renowned Kaipara Sculpture Park Opens Gates to Raise Funds for Music Charity
World-renowned Kaipara sculpture park opens gates to raise funds for The New Zealand Music Foundation.
Gibbs Farm, the private Kaipara sculpture park owned by entrepreneur Alan Gibbs, is to open its gates on Thursday March 23 in a fundraiser for music charity The New Zealand Music Foundation.
As the Farm is rarely open for the public to visit, the fundraising day is a special opportunity for supporters of The New Zealand Music Foundation to view Gibbs' unique collection of 22 artworks by renowned sculptors from around the world.
The New Zealand Music Foundation General Manager, Peter Dickens, says: "The creative drive within those in the visual arts and music is equally powerful and one we fundamentally understand. Those who attend this event will experience a blend of built and natural landscape that will affect them in ways they haven't experienced before. We're very grateful to the Gibbs Farm trustees for supporting our work to change lives through music with this rare opportunity."
Tickets are on sale now from NZ Tix, with the proceeds contributing to support the efforts of The New Zealand Music Foundation.
Private car parking is available on site, and The Foundation will also be providing bus travel to the farm from the Auckland CBD at an additional cost.
No beverages or food are available for purchase onsite, but food can be brought into the park and pre-ordered picnic lunchboxes are also available at an additional cost.
