Over a decade in the making, Matakana’s Sculptureum is an art, food and wine experience developed by Anthony and Sandra Grant
A sculpture garden and winery opens just outside of Matakana
Near Matakana, north of Auckland, an art park more than 12 years in the making is ready to inspire. Sculptureum sprawls over 10 hectares with three art-filled gardens, six galleries, a vineyard, function centre and Rothko Restaurant.
The complex includes figurative works by the likes of Cézanne and Monet, as well as giant animal sculptures, real-life animals and the jewel of the collection, a chandelier by American artist Dale Chihuly – the most substantial work of glass art on public display in Australasia.
The gardens and galleries are open from Thursday to Monday and tickets can be purchased online.
