The Wonder Gardens
Let’s go to the park and…
For generations this familiar invitation has sparked a mad scurrying to grab hats, boots, coats, dogs, balls and snacks.
What comes after the ‘and’ is largely unimportant, it’s the destination that matters – the public park, green space or botanic gardens just down your street. A wonderous and wonderful place of possibility, curiosity and imagination. That colourful, childhood memory factory that as adults we still get the fun of visiting and reconnecting with.
Come along! Come play, stroll, remember, relax, and seek out the magic of our locally-loved parks and gardens with us.
The exhibition will open May 18 and run till 18 November 2017. This exhibition has been funded by the Taranaki Regional Council (TRC).
Flashbacks: 80’s & 90’s Fashion Photography
Looking back at particular fashion choices in the 80’s and 90’s, this exhibition showcases some unique fashion photography from the Ellmore-Timms collection at Aotea Utanganui. Lester Timms and Rodney J. Ellmore took portraits called ‘glamour prints’ which are pretty unique. See them on display at the museum from May 2017.
