The TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre is Auckland’s hidden gem. Located in the historic Pah Homestead in Monte Cecilia Park, Hillsborough, the Arts Centre opened to the public in August 2010.
Pah Homestead was fully restored by the Auckland City Council together with the generous support of TSB Bank from 2009 to 2010 as the new home of the James Wallace Arts Trust and its Collection.
The Arts Centre hosts a changing programme of exhibitions curated from the James Wallace Arts Trust collection as well as regional touring exhibitions. The Arts Centre also provides ongoing education programmes for Auckland schools and the wider public. Entry is by donation. Weekday tours of the house and exhibitions are available for groups. Please contact the Arts Centre to make a booking.
An artist in residency programme in association with Otago University is an important component of the Arts Centre. This partnership also provides for exhibitions curated from the extensive collections of the Hocken Library.
