Art changes with sea­sons

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Spring has sprung in High St.

Artist Martin Pop­pel­well’s tree art­work is lin­ing the out­side of 33 High St boast­ing a spring theme with hand­painted blos­soms.

The work will change with the sea­sons.

The chang­ing work al­lows the artist to add blos­soms, fruit, bird nests and leaves.

It also sig­ni­fies the chang­ing face of High St.

The build­ing is cur­rently a de­mo­li­tion site but once housed the bars Box and Cause Cele­bre which are re­mem­bered for their place in Auck­land’s nightlife through the 80s and 90s and once hosted Eric Clap­ton.

Auck­lan­ders are en­cour­aged to in­ter­act with the art­work dur­ing its sea­sonal trans­for­ma­tion.

It is un­cer­tain how long the tem­po­rary piece will be in place.
