Art Week is a great week to support and celebrate student art and to create more awareness of the exceptional art around Dunedin. This year’s Art Week is packed with events, activities and installations for everyone to enjoy! We will be back with the popular Student Art Exhibition + Sale, Virtual Reality Art, Paint + Sip Evening and City Gallery Crawl, as well as many other great interactive installations and activities. You don’t have to be an enthusiastic art student to be part of this great week, as anyone can discover and appreciate art, so get involved!
