Sculpture walk

The Tahuna Beach Sculpture Walk competition is a central focus of the celebrations in 2016, running alongside the Collective Holiday Memories competition – so there will much for locals and visitors to discover, explore and celebrate.

To coincide with the call for contributions of photographs and stories, TBHP partnered with Arts Council Nelson to put out a call for all New Zealand based sculptors to enter the Tahuna Beach Nature Sculpture Walk.

This culminates in a temporary sculpture exhibition in the park, which is open to the public from 10am to 10pm, Saturday 24 December until Tuesday 10 January 2017.
