A cer­e­mony has been held to mark the start of work on the Auck­land Art Gallery de­vel­op­ment.

Prime Min­is­ter He­len Clark and Auck­land mayor John Banks un­veiled a plaque on Thurs­day last week cel­e­brat­ing the of­fi­cial start of the gallery’s $113 mil­lion re­de­vel­op­ment.

The project comes 120 years af­ter the gallery was es­tab­lished.

Miss Clark says the vi­sion­ary de­vel­op­ment will se­cure the gallery’s fu­ture for at least an­other 100 years.

The gallery will have 50 per­cent more ex­hi­bi­tion space. It is one of the largest her­itage restora­tion projects un­der­taken in New Zealand.
