White Night at Lopdell House

A colour-coded treasure trove inspired by Dr Seuss, Tickle My Senses is an interactive exhibition of over 40 artworks from The Dowse Art Museum collection. The show encourages visitors to respond to art in ways beyond just looking. By tickling our senses of touch, taste, smell, hearing and sight, visitors can enjoy a range of eclectic artworks in innovative and playful ways.

Concept developer Leanne Wickham says, "The show is a great way to discover how we learn about the world around us and how all our senses - not just sight - help us appreciate and understand art."

Titirangi will be alive with music and performers out on the street.

Experience over 40 artworks from The Dowse Art Museum collection including: Fran Allison, Penelope Barnhill, Don Binney, Barry Brickell, Len Castle, Madeleine Child, Fiona Clark, Vita Cochran, Jim Cooper, Roy Cowan, Mike Crawford, John Croucher, Warwick Freeman, Elena Gee, Richard Killeen, Elizabeth McClure, Paul Mason, Gael Montgomerie, Garry Nash, Shelley Norton, Alan Preston, Peter Raos, Willa Rogers, Suzanne Tamaki, Jeff Thompson, Gary Tricker, Lisa Walker, Ans Westra and Ann Verdcourt.
