Just as Monica Brewster and Len Lye both had the remarkable vision to think beyond today; so too are the Friends of the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery/Len Lye Centre looking to the future by establishing the Friends’ Endowment Fund with Te Karaka Foundation.
The Swingiest Fund for Generations of Art Lovers
This endowment fund will provide an enduring source of funding for the Friends to then support the Gallery. Our vision is a fund that is not only lasting, but one that realises innovation, growth and acquisition projects as the fund grows.
Our dream is for future generations of contemporary art lovers to look back with pride on Monica and Len’s extraordinary generosity, who together have given us the 'swingiest art gallery in the antipodes' and also the vision of the Friends of the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery/Len Lye Centre in establishing this fund in 2017.
