Public Art Group

The committee has progressed steadily this year towards the completion of our next piece of Public Art on the Omokoroa Peninsula. This is to be an Anchor Stone sculpture at the end of the peninsula, near the Omokoroa Boat Club.

We have several applications for grants in the pipeline at present and hope that if they are successful we will have enough money to cover this project. We are trying to avoid going to the Omokoroa community for funds as local residents were very generous previously, with donations towards the Lizard sculpture. However, we would not say no if any private individuals would like to contribute!

It is our hope that the sculpture will be in place before the end of the year.

Our lizard project at the corner of Omokoroa Road and SH2 has been the major focus for the Omokoroa Public Art Group. It was completed successfully by April 2016 and ceremonially blessed and unveiled on April 10th.

We were entered into the 2016 WBOP Community Awards and came first in the Arts and Culture section, winning $500 in prize money. Our entry was based on the lizard sculpture.

We applied for and received a grant of $1000 from The Centre, Omokoroa, to go towards our next project. That project is in the planning stages. We intend to place an anchor stone sculpture at the point of the peninsula. We have chosen a sculptor and at present are deciding what form the sculpture will take, and we are obtaining the required permission to plant it somewhere on council land.

The stainless steel plaque will be attached to the lizard rock next Saturday. We are very grateful to the Omokoroa Community Board/ WBOPDC who took care of the cost of this part of the project. The weathering apparent on the lizard is being attended to.

Arrangements for the blessing/unveiling are under way and the date has been set for Sunday 10 April, 2016 at 9am.

Once this project has been completed we will make a start on the next. The weathering apparent on the lizard is being attended to.
