Devonport Library artist announced

A celebrated New Zealand artist, with a childhood connection to Devonport, has been selected to create a series of artworks for the new Devonport Library.

Judy Millar, who has represented New Zealand at the Venice Biennale in 2009 and 2011, has been chosen from 85 artists who applied.

“We are delighted to announce Judy Millar as the artist who will bring a unique flavor to the interior of this building,” says David Thomas, Auckland Council Arts and Culture Project Manager.

“We were thrilled to receive so many responses from artists interested in this opportunity to enhance the library’s functional areas with art.

“Judy’s confident and mature approach, and her unique talent, helped her application stand out. We were lucky that she also has a connection with the area.”

Millar will work on concepts with council’s Arts and Culture team, and alongside Athfield Architects as they progress the design phase of the new building.

Judy Millar was brought up on Auckland’s North Shore and has had a long association with the Devonport and Takapuna areas. Millar’s work is included in notable collections in New Zealand and around the world.
