Work a gi­ant ad­vent cal­en­dar

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

An art­work by New Zealand artist Dick Frizzell is just one of 25 im­ages fea­tur­ing in the largest Christ­mas Ad­vent Cal­en­dar Auck­land has ever seen.

The ad­vent cal­en­dar will be un­veiled in Wyn­yard Quar­ter next month.

Auck­land Coun­cil or­gan­i­sa­tion Water­front Auck­land is co-or­di­nat­ing the project in which im­ages will be added to the 12 me­tre high cal­en­dar be­ing in­stalled on The Gantry in Silo Park.

Cal­en­dar doors will open each day from De­cem­ber 1 un­til Christ­mas Day to re­veal a Kiwi Christ­mas scene.

Water­front Auck­land chair­man Bob Har­vey says the cal­en­dar will lend a fes­tive flavour to the water­front.

‘‘I urge ev­ery­one to come down to see this mag­nif­i­cent artis­tic cre­ation and to re­flect on what Christ­mas means to them and how they can give back to the less for­tu­nate,’’ he says.
