HALO breaks audience records!

April 2024. Wellington Sculpture Trust shares big news from the capital: "Gone but not forgotten! HALO, a virtual reality sculpture by artist @gillgatfield, and commissioned by the Wellington Sculpture Trust for its 40th Anniversary celebrations, has left an indelible mark and had record breaking engagement by the public. Over 24,500 HALOs were created by Wellingtonians and visitors to the city from September 2023 to March 2024 – a big number by NZ and international standards. This celestial vision is already missed. People are asking where has HALO gone and when is it coming back!" HALO was presented by Wellington Sculpture Trust, Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand and Aotearoa NZ Festival of the Arts 2024.
