AN EXHIBITION FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
The Stingray Project
Early Maori named Mangawhai in relation to its "stream of the stingray' and the current vibrant community art activity reflects these stingray and sea life themes. People are depicting their perceptions of Mangawhai on small stingray shapes which will have anti-graffiti coating and be mounted on large stingray shapes in an outdoor location for the many participants and wider community to enjoy.
