Street art charity auction

Flyer for the Ivy Box Street art auction on King's Birthday weekend 2023

This King’s Birthday weekend, the Ivy Box art gallery will play host to a vibrant art auction.

Art. Music. Pizza. And all for a good cause! What could be better?

From 10 am, talented street artist Morepork will create artwork at the Ivy Box gallery. At 5 pm, the finished artworks will be auctioned off by Brendan Quill. The proceeds from the auction will go towards suicide prevention and mental health support charities.

Morepork is a well-known street artist from Christchurch and one of the country’s last freehand tattoo artists. You can bid on any of the art Morepork creates at the Ivy Box over the weekend. Watch the artwork being created, then place your bid.

While you’re here, don’t forget to peruse the pop-up shop featuring fashion and jewellery by Jane Sutherland.

There’ll also be live music throughout the day, and Italian Way will be on site, serving delicious pizzas, snacks and desserts.

A huge thank you to our fellow supporters and sponsors for the weekend, Driftaway Queenstown, Italian Way and Jane Sutherland.
