PUBLIC WORK OF ART FOR DAVID LANGE MEMORIAL
A memorial to David Lange in the form of a major work of art will be built in Otahuhu, Auckland, the former prime minister’s birthplace and the home he memorably described in his autobiography.
Funding for the project will be raised by the David Lange Memorial Trust, which was launched at a function in Otahuhu on 16 August.
The memorial will be built on land in Mason Avenue in Otahuhu which is set aside by the Auckland City Council for a leisure centre, swimming pool, library and recreational areas, and which forms part of a major redevelopment of the heart of the Otahuhu township. The memorial will be built on land designated by the council for public open space or artwork.
The trust aims to commission an art work of major significance which can be enjoyed by the people of Otahuhu and which will attract visitors with an interest in New Zealand’s history and culture.
The trust will shortly advertise for expressions of interest from artists. The trust expects that the fee for the work will be not less than $150,000; this cost and related costs of commissioning, installing and completing the project will be met by the trust from donations, which it hopes to raise from groups and individuals throughout New Zealand.
The trust is pleased to announce that the Governor-General Designate, Hon Anand Satyanand PCNZM, has agreed to accept appointment as patron of the David Lange Memorial Trust.
The trust is a registered charitable trust. The trustees are Andrew Beyer, Graham Mullins and Margaret Pope. The project will be managed by Deborah White.
