One of the more significant pieces of artwork in the RISE exhibition has been damaged by flood waters.

Canterbury Museum director Anthony Wright said more than 20 areas throughout the museum had leaked overnight.

"The situation was pretty dire this morning," he said.

An area of Thom Buchanan's painted street scene has come away from the wall because water was leaking from the internal guttering.

Ambivalent. The city needs more than a river precinct to recover

Not impressed. The design narrows the river
