For a City of Sculpture      

The Wellington Sculpture Trust is a registered charitable trust dependent for all its revenue on the grants, donations and sponsorships provided by its supporters.

The scope of this support has grown in recent years as more of Wellington’s citizens appreciate the value of public art in the city, and businesses recognise the long term benefits from an association with our sculptures.

Sculptures become a part of our identity. They are an investment. Ferns in particular has become an icon which is used to promote Wellington in its many ventures.

The Wellington Sculpture Trust extends an invitation to you to share in building this legacy for Wellington and enriching the lives of the residents of this city. In so doing you will also be helping to foster the practice of contemporary sculpture in New Zealand.

You will be part of a tradition of excellence, helping to guarantee that this body of work continues to grow and inspire generations of art lovers for many years to come. The sculptures are a voyage of discovery around our city.

Newsletters and events will keep you up to date with all of the WST happenings including the selection of works through the commissioning processes, their installation and their unveiling.
