The annual exhibition of Muka Studio lithographs by international artists especially for kids is back!
The idea behind Muka Prints is to make contemporary art accessible by compiling original lithographs from international artists, covering the artists names, and letting young people under nineteen connect with works that speak to them. More than 60,000 Muka Youth Prints have found their way to young people from Kaitaia to Invercargill.The prints are offered exclusively to young people aged 5 to 18, who will have an opportunity to buy up to three works.
Unframed works $75, framed $155

This year’s weekly ArtBite programme is about to start! From Friday 10 February, we will again offer a weekly presentation of a work on display here at Te Puna o Waiwhetū. The aim of these 30-minute talks is to give you an art break in the middle of your day. We know you’re busy, so this isn’t a long lecture meant to take up too much of your time. And they’re free. With a new work presented each Friday at 12.30pm, the information will be fresh so you can impress your friends during your weekend socialising.
