Mon 12 March – Anthony Grant

For 12 years Anthony Grant and his wife Sandra, filled their 10ha Matakana vineyard and restaurant site with hundreds of sculptures - including the most substantial piece of glass art on public display in Australasia (a chandelier by Dale Chihuly), works by Cezanne, Matisse, Chagall and Rodin, brightly coloured animals by the Cracking Art Group and hundreds of other pieces by New Zealand and international artists.  The title of Anthony’s speech will be ‘Sculptureum: Bringing Art to Life in Auckland’.
