Artists asked to submit designs for Addington

Artists asked to submit designs for Addington reserve

Three artists have been selected to develop design concepts for a sculpture to be positioned in the reserve at the corner of Lyttelton St and Lincoln Rd.

The Christchurch City Council’s Project Selection Team has invited them to submit their designs by 21 January.

A decision on which sculpture will be created for the Addington Reserve will be made by 28 January.

Local artists were invited to register their interest in designing the sculpture in October, this year.

As yet un-named, the reserve is historically significant for a number of reasons including the fact that it is important to Maori as a former mahinga kai area (place to gather food) and is well known for its mokihi, a special raupo canoe that was used in a former nearby stream.

It was also once part of the Waimakariri River, home to Nairns Nursery and is in the same vicinity as Addington Raceway and the Showgrounds.

The Project Selection Team includes the Council’s Maori arts advisor Paula Rigby, Christchurch City Councillor Carole Anderton, the Council’s Beckenham community advocate Barbara Ford and representatives from local Runanga, residents groups, businesses, interested organisations, local artists and art advisors.
