McCahon 100 brings NZ art to life

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:53 pm on 16 August 2019

The name Colin McCahon for many of us will raise images of huge text over sparse backdrops, but he was an artist of many colours and moods. 

2019 is the centenary of the artist's birth and the McCahon House Museum is celebrating with an online project called Colin McCahon 100. Vivienne Stone is the museum's director.
