The Visual Art Leadership team came together last month to organise the first Monthly Art Challenge of 2020. The topical theme for the June challenge was COVID-19 inspired artworks. The Visual Art Leadership team was blown away by the huge amount of high quality entries submitted. Last Friday the exhibition was hung and students voted for their favourite artwork. 

A huge congratulations to Ben for his amazing COVID-19 sculpture. His surreal sculpture was humorous and well constructed. Ben’s work reminded the Visual Art Leader team of Ronnie van Hout’s hand sculpture called Quasi, which lived on the roof of the Christchurch Art Gallery before lockdown.
