Award Winning New Zealand Artist to present one-night exhibition in Hamilton.
Hamilton, Waikato - The University of Waikato is delighted to present in collaboration with Award Winning Artist Yaniv Janson, an art for charity event supporting Epilepsy New Zealand. The exhibition will take place on 28 May at the Waikato Museum.

The event “One-Night (Art) Stand” will be hosted at the foyer of the Waikato Museum in Hamilton on Monday, 28 May and will feature an exhibition of five pieces from Yaniv Janson’s previous works alongside a curated selection of art students’ pieces. The exposition of these pieces aims to raise awareness and funds for the charity Epilepsy New Zealand.
