Behind the Scenes - Collection Tour

This event has already taken place

Get amongst the crates and cases, racks and stacks in this guided tour of The Dowse Collection Store. Established in the 1970s, The Dowse Collection is home to over 3,500 pieces with a significant focus on studio craft—making it one of the largest collections of this type in Aotearoa.

Learn from Collection Managers Jo Wehrly and Abigail Timmins how these precious taonga are stored and cared for, and get up close and personal with some of the remarkable pieces in our fascinating, diverse and quirky public art collection.
