Toihoukura is the School of Maori Visual Arts and Design at the EIT Campus in Gisborne. Toihoukura is an internationally recognized indigenous art programme offering a Diploma and Bachelors Degree in Māori Visual Arts. Toihoukura provides a model of learning that sets it apart from other institutions. Using both the ideology and practice of learning in a ‘wānanga’ environment, every student is encouraged to reach their personal and professional potential using traditional concepts to inform contemporary art expression.
The art works in this exhibition have been created by the senior students in the Toihoukura Programme. Each year the graduate with the highest level of achievement in the final year is awarded the Ruanuku Art Award.
The Ruanuku Art Award is sponsored by Dr Jack C Richards, a condition upon receiving the award is that a work once selected is donated by the recipient to the fine arts collection of the Tairāwhiti Museum.
