17 DAYS OF SHOPPING—MARY MACPHERSON

TRIBUTE TO MURALIST MARZ CUMMINGS
January – February 2001

Wellington artists pay tribute to Marz Cummings, a community muralist who died in 1999, by painting a mural inside the Hirschfeld Gallery. The public will be able to watch the artists work and then view the finished mural for the remaining exhibition period. The mural’s life will extend beyond the exhibition as, painted on a false wall, it will be removed from the gallery intact and displayed elsewhere.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius
