Whitecliffe students were celebrated at the Eden Arts Art Schools Awards 2020 at the Webb's in Mt Eden, with Fine Arts graduate Hulita Koloi walking away with a High Commended Award from the night for her piece Malaloi 2019.
In a collaborative venture with the major Central Auckland art institutions, the Eden Arts initiative presents the very best student works from each of Elam, Unitec, AUT and Whitecliffe in a single exhibition, awarding a cash prize to the overall winners.
For Eden Arts, this award (launched in 2011) seeks to complement our longstanding annual Young Artists Awards while extending the geographical area in which we can help to promote and support young artists.
