Tale of Southland — Murihiku
Author and editor: Alison Broad. Photographs: David Russell, Southern Exposures
The ‘Tale of Southland — Murihiku” sculpture had its official opening on Friday 21 August 2015.
It had its beginnings more than two years earlier, and was inspired by the work that South Alive, the South Invercargill Urban Rejuvenation Trust, was doing to rejuvenate and reinvigorate South Invercargill.
Cliff Broad, an Invercargill businessman who had retired to Queenstown, was reading his Southland Times one May morning in 2013, when his attention was captured by an article about the work being done by South Alive to rejuvenate South Invercargill. Cliff had a lifelong interest in South Invercargill because of his mother’s family links with the area. They, the Lister family, had lived in Earn St and had been part of the South Invercargill community for two or three generations. Cliff had also travelled extensively throughout his lifetime, and had developed a keen appreciation of the pride and delight that public art can engender.
