Anthony Grant - Taking a punt on the Sculptureum

From Great Encounters


Anthony Grant - Taking a punt on the Sculptureum
 Auckland-based husband and wife team, lawyers Anthony and Sandra Grant, have just opened a hugely ambitious art project near Matakana, north of Auckland, called Sculptureum. For 12 years, the couple have filled their 10ha vineyard and restaurant site with hundreds of sculptures - including the most substantial piece of glass art on public display in Australasia (a chandelier by Dale Chihuly), works by Cezanne, Matisse, Chagall and Rodin, brightly coloured animals by the Cracking Art Group and hundreds of other pieces by New Zealand and international artists. Anthony Grant also co-authored The Law of Intellectual Property in New Zealand (1989) and wrote the New Zealand chapter in ADR and Trusts: An international guide to arbitration and mediation of trust disputes (Grant Jones and Peter Pexton, 2015).
