Real Art Roadshow

Founded and directed by visionary art patron Fiona Campbell, the Real Art Roadshow is New Zealand's largest travelling art exhibition with over 120 artworks touring secondary schools throughout the country. The RAR collection is presented in two large, customised trucks allowing students to experience contemporary art in mobile galleries. The Real Art Roadshow experience includes enrichment and education programmes tailored to student needs. Campbell's continued commitment to supporting artists through the purchase of art for the RAR collection and putting it to work in secondary schools is a good news story at a time when art patronage and sponsorship is on the wane in New Zealand's recessionary economy. See here for more information on the Real Art Roadshow and how to support it.
