Bringing cabinet art to life in Buller

10 Jul 2023

The Chorus Cabinet Art Programme, in partnership with Buller District Council is back to give local artists the opportunity to showcase their artwork in the district.

Five cabinets throughout the district have been chosen for beautification and artists are encouraged to submit their designs before the deadline on August 31.

The project has been very successful, so Chorus has partnered with Buller District Council again this year to extend its reach further.

Chorus Community Relations Manager Jo Seddon says that it makes sense to partner with local councils, as they know their communities best.

“Buller District Council has nominated the five cabinets in need of beautification and we’re really looking forward to seeing the creative artwork from our local artists.”

These painted cabinets bring colour and liveliness to the street, often telling stories about the communities in which they are located and help to discourage tagging.

Team Leader Communications and Community Engagement Mira Schwill will be part of the selection process for designs and says she is looking forward to seeing what designs local artists come up with this year.

Buller Mayor Jamie Cleine says he’s excited to welcome back the cabinet art programme to the Buller District this year. 

“This initiative is a great opportunity to not only beautify our streets, but to give our local artists another opportunity to express their talents.”

Design submissions are now open and the winning design for each cabinet will be chosen from entries received.
