Muka Youth Prints 2016

Muka Youth Prints is coming back to Tauranga Art Gallery on Monday 29 August between 3.30-5.30 pm. Entry is free and bookings are not required.

The idea behind Muka Youth Prints is simple: The best way to make young people acquainted with contemporary art is to get real works of art in their hands.  

Muka Gallery tours the country every year with a set of 40 new lithographs, providing an opportunity for young people (aged 5-18 inclusive) to purchase lithographic artworks in an environment where adults are not allowed. Any young person is welcome and there is no pressure to buy. 

The names and signatures of the artists are covered over during the shows, as Muka wants young art collectors to look at the work, not considering the fame of the artist or potential for financial gain. 

DiY frames are available. They also cost $70 but have to be ordered and paid beforehand via:
