NZ Outdoor Art

We have created a new Facebook page so that we can measure interest in our art map and to see how many are following our updates. Find the page at

The page has been named NZ Outdoor Art as we want to expand the map concept to the whole of New Zealand. A bit ambitious? Maybe but it will give us an excuse to travel more.

Art Update

We have discovered Google Map layers! Of course layers were always available but we were unaware (or not very observant). So we have taken our four art trail maps and merged them all into one giant maps with four different layers. Now you can see where all the outdoor public art is around Auckland in one comprehensive and cluttered map!

Sculpture added 23/02/2017 - Thought Pattern by Jacqueline Aust. Commissioned in 2007 by the Rodney District Council.

Utility Box added 23/02/2017 - Corner of Minnehaha and Huia Roads in Woodlands Park - Art by Monique Endt

Mural added 23/02/2017 - On Hobson Street in the city.
