Massey University has reached back again to find a visual artist to induct into their hall of fame. Last year it was Len Lye (1902-1980) and now the university has announced it will honour Gordon Walters (1919-1995) who was a student at the Art Department Wellington Technical College and taught there 1945. Sally Morgan, Pro Vice-Chancellor of the College of Creative Arts said Walters demonstrated “the contribution that an art and design education can make to the stamping of New Zealand’s mark on the world.”
