We have been given the exciting opportunity to have the â€œFanfare Marquette" - a 60cm diameter model of Fanfare and a talk by the artist Neil Dawson . The  model of Fanfare will be available to view between 1.00 and 1.30 today in the Library

This year SCAPE PUBLIC ART are running a campaign for Fanfare, a bold, contemporary, large-scale sculpture with 360 rotating pinwheels which has been created by internationally renowned Christchurch sculptor, Neil Dawson, and will be installed on State Highway 1 at Chaney's Corner. Fanfare will be New Zealand's largest work of public sculpture and its installation will elevate Canterbury onto the global arts stage in recognition of this extraordinary and visionary sculpture. The campaign can be seen here: http://scapebiennial.org.nz/story-of-fanfare
