Featuring brilliant urban photography, this celebration of the dynamic presence of sculpture in Wellington vividly captures more than 40 sculptures throughout the city’s streets and parks. An informative and provocative examination of the sculptures' origins, this collection shows how many of the gorgeous art works came into being due to the shared vision of individuals, government agencies, and corporations who value the relationship of art and city, to brighten the lives of its citizens. The result is both a visual feast and a unique record of the 21st-century city’s fabric—sure to be treasured by travelers, art enthusiasts, and locals alike.

Jenny Harper is director of the Christchurch Art Gallery. Aaron Lister is exhibitions curator at the National Library Gallery, National Library of New Zealand. Bruce Connew is a photographer who has shown more than 20 solo and group exhibitions.
