A free international exhibition comprising 110 copper, bronze and steel sculptures representing the Olympic Movement opens in Wellington on 12th October to 15 October, at Michael Fowler Centre.
The Olympic Landscape Sculpture Exhibition, inspired by the sculptures of ancient Greece promotes art and culture alongside sport as key elements of the Olympic Movement.
“This stunning exhibition takes the breath away.” said Barry Maister, Secretary General of the New Zealand Olympic Committee. “Through the works of artists from all over the world, the sculptures bring the Olympic Movement to life. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone with an interest in art, sport or the Olympic Movement.”
