Thursday 2 June | 5pm - 10pm

For one magical starry night, jump on board a free Art Night bus and catch special late night openings at galleries across the Wellington Region. This year Expressions Whirinaki joins forces with City Gallery Wellington and Te Papa (Wellington), Pataka (Porirua), Mahara Gallery (Waikanae) and The Dowse (Lower Hutt) to celebrate Matariki with live music, exhibitions and special events after dark. And it's all FREE!

Expressions Whirinaki will have free soup, live music, kids craft activities and StarLab; an inflatable planetarium.

Buses travel in a central loop between City Gallery Wellington and Te Papa (Wellington), Pataka (Porirua) and The Dowse (Lower Hutt). Buses run in both directions. From Pataka you can also connect to Mahara Gallery (Waikanae); and from The Dowse you can connect to Expressions Whirinaki (Upper Hutt).
