The Christchurch Art Gallery Foundation is still on a mission: to build a collection of great art that Christchurch is proud of.
Bill Culbert's BeBop was purchased with funds raised by Foundation Partners.
A collection of opportunities. Art that tells stories and honours the past, that reveals the present and compels us to imagine and debate the future. This regenerating city has multiple and complex priorities so we want to partner with people and families who can help protect our core business – collecting.
The new Christchurch will be a city of opportunity and renewal; we have the chance to shape its culture and we’d like you to help us. We have all benefited from past gifts to Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū. Now it’s your chance to speak to the future and make wise investments for those who come after us. Help us to tell the Christchurch story with art – our past, our current transition and the re-imagination of our future.
Renee Moore, Bayleys Canterbury
Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū is such an inclusive space and offers something for everyone…just like Bayleys Canterbury. How lucky are we to have somewhere to reflect and appreciate all that is Christchurch.
Without art, our lives would be incredibly dull. Now more than every we need art to challenge, question and be available to everyone. Expression in our city is vital for us to grow as an inclusive community – all together one.
