Pah Homestead, Hillsborough, Auckland

The new home for the Wallace art collection our most prestigious art award, opened today.

We visited the building around a year ago and it was basically derelict, but what a transformation. Built in 1877, originally one of Aucklands grandest homes, now housing the art collection which includes works by artists as diverse as McCahon and Hotere through to Pule and Weallans.
