The first “Sculpture on the Gulf” outdoor sculpture exhibition took place in February 2003. It was the brainchild of a group of Waiheke Islanders with an interest in outdoor sculpture and the desire to do something for the Waiheke community.

Right from the start the aim of the exhibition on the Matiatia coastal walkway was to be the very best outdoor sculpture exhibition in New Zealand. Works were to be new, not seen anywhere else, “unexpected, daring and original” and responding to, and complementing the unique and spectacular location.

By 2009 the event took place over three, not two weeks, and included a schools programme.
The 40,000 visitors to the 2017 event enjoyed an enhanced walkway and pavilion experience that was partly funded by the introduction of a $10 ‘entry-donation.

A new architectural collaboration project that will become a feature of future events and the donation of two of the walkway sculptures to the local community were highlights of a very successful event.

Sculpture on the Gulf is bi-annual with the next event scheduled for March 2019.
