Papamoa-based artist Kereama Taepa has been selected to develop a project for Maclean Park in Paraparaumu.

The Kapiti Coast District Council deputy mayor Janet Holborow says the council’s public art panel was impressed with the quality of Taepa’s concepts and their flexibility, so his motifs can be integrated into different areas of the park now and in any future cevelopment.

Four artists were asked to submit conceptual designs.

Taepa will work with the panel and representatives from local iwi over the coming months to develop his initial concepts into a detailed design.

Previous projects include public sculptures in Wellington and New Plymouth, toilet block screens and drinking fountains for Rotorua Lakes Council, and an ATM wrap design for ANZ bank.

ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
