Archived: The Tank Art Project

Part of Art Week in Auckland's Heart of the City

A larger than life art installation will be kicked off by artist Askew One during Art Week in the Heart of the City. His work has been inspired by, and quotes from, C.K. Stead’s poem ‘Auckland’.

The Tank Art Project in Wynyard Quarter's Tank Farm has been driven by arts mastermind Hamish Keith and is being funded by Westpac.

The project will see five artists decorating the walls of the Tanks in a creative concept - the remaining four artists are yet to be announced.

Westpac’s Director of Corporate Affairs, Sue Foley is thrilled to see the tank farm transform and proud to be supporting Auckland’s artistic community. 

“It’s great to be able to champion creativity and support New Zealand art in such a high profile spot for all Aucklanders to enjoy. We’re delighted to be working with Heart of the City for this year’s Art Week,” Ms Foley says.
The Tank Art Project was made possible thanks to Westpac, Resene, Bulk Storage and Stolthaven.
