Call me a party pooper, but I've seen in the New Zealand New Year watching Paul Murray on Sky News.
Have a wonderful and safe New Year everyone. Let's make 2017 a year of positive change. I'll need plenty of support to make it happen, so I'll keep you in the loop with state and federal changes I hope to make.
Thanks for a wonderful year. It means a lot to have so much support.
Today we pay tribute to Australian artist Leonard French OBE, who has passed away at the age of 88. The NGV is honoured to be the home of French’s magnificent stained-glass ceiling, which has soared above the Great Hall at NGV International since the building’s opening on 20 August 1968. When revealed, the largest stained-glass ceiling in the world spurred the building’s architect Sir Roy Grounds to proclaim it ‘a ceiling that is a work of art in itself’. It was also an engineering feat to prop up more than 200 intersected triangles of diamond-cut coloured glass, each weighing over 300 kilograms.
Even greater than its imposing scale, for almost 50 years since it was made, Leonard French’s Great Hall ceiling has watched over many millions of visitors to the NGV – those reclined on the floor who gaze upwards and take in the awe of its vibrant colours; locals and visitors meeting friends and family; children playing; and those using the space for contemplation, to remember, wonder or have their spirits lifted. Leonard French’s ceiling makes our building a living place and its contribution to each visitor’s experience is immeasurable. We thank the artist for his transformative vision and our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.
