Kia ora 2014. In January, Christchurch streets (and the Canterbury Museum) came alive with the Rise Festival kicking off a programme of art in the streets. It is the bright antidote to the grey of demolition and decay, even when it uses them as a canvas.
We went to the exhibition on New Year’s Day, and several times again.
The Arts Centre was a pressie.
And the Botanic Gardens were in luscious form. Hydrangeas, even beautiful reflected in the puddles.
Shand’s Emporium was on the move.
And I enjoyed exploring the Museum and Christ’s College’s gargoyles and figures.
