The Culture Canvas Mural Series

The Culture Canvas mural series began in 2019 and 2022 saw an addition to that series that was unveiled on the wall of the Sports Centre on Railway Road in Hastings. This work was painted by Dali Susanto and celebrates the diverse community that uses the Sports Centre.

Hastings Icons

Hastings Icons is a multi-site installation work by Adrian Thornton geolocated in Hastings, Hawke's Bay.  It takes images connected to the theme of great things growing in Hastings - people, industries, ideas - and turns them into large-scale screenprints on public walls. Each print is linked through a QR code to more information on the subject, located online and accessed through a mobile device. This coming together of a tangible image and a web-based experience provides satisfying interactivity for the participant. The full art work is not experienced until the viewer accesses the online content, although each element can be enjoyed on its own.
