Since 2010, Art in the Dark has grown into a major public art event for Auckland. In 2013, over 55,000 visited Art in the Dark to explore, play with and marvel at 44 light installations throughout Ponsonby’s Western Park – with projections, performances and large scale immersive experiences from some of the most innovative creators the public will have a chance to see.

“This delightful event, which came out of nowhere three years ago, turns art viewing into an adventure sport in the otherwise under-used park.” - Janet Mcalister, NZ Herald, 17 Nov 2012
