Only days after beginning installation of their first major piece philanthropic arts trust 'mesh' have now begun work on their second major gift to Hamilton.  

The second piece - which currently has the working title 'Arc' has been designed by talented Auckland based artist Lonnie Hutchinson.

Their first piece -  'Te Pumanawa O Te Whenua - Beat Connection' - started to be installed at Claudelands Events Centre last week.

It was the first of many works to be gifted to the city at no cost to the ratepayer with all of the pieces donated by philanthropic arts group Mesh, which has received funds from various individuals, corporates and charitable trusts for the project.

Arc will be situated on the site of the old Shell service station, near the entrance to Lake Rotoroa, on Pembroke St.

The concept is based on Hutchinson's response to the history of the lake and surrounding areas and its significance to Māori as a prime source of food and materials.
