From Standing Room Only, 1:50 pm on 18 August 2019

This weekend marks the beginning of celebrations of the 50th anniversary of Aratoi, the Wairarapa's Museum for  Art and History in Masterton.

Dame Robin White, Aratoi's patron calls the museum it the Wairarapa's taonga. It's a treasure house but also hasn't been shy of some cutting edge contemporary art, drawing visitors from around the country. We speak to collection manager Bronwyn Reid who has been with Aratoi for 23 years.
