Warbirds and Wheels Collections » Visual Art Gallery
The Real Art Roadshow is the brainchild of Fiona Campbell, Rob McLeod and Gerald Barnett, three visionary art curators who had the idea of bringing real art to school students in geographically isolated or challenging locations throughout New Zealand. Prior to the Roadshow, many of these students had only encountered New Zealand art through textbooks and web images. Realising that it’s not always possible to bring the students to the art, the team had a eureka moment and decided to bring the art to the students!
The Real Art Roadshow aims to give students interested in art the opportunity to see the real thing; to be inspired, challenged and ‘wowed’ by the true scale, texture and colour of original artworks, no matter where they live or where they study.
The Real Art Roadshow features two collections – one is always on display at the Warbirds and Wheels visitor attraction at Wanaka Airport while the other tours New Zealand secondary schools.
