Chalice Sculpture, Christchurch, New Zealand.
Chalice, a permanent sculpture located in Christchurch's Cathedral Square, celebrates the new millennium and the 150th Anniversary of the founding of Christchurch and Canterbury by the Canterbury Association.
The official lighting ceremony for Chalice was held 7 September 2001.
The Turning Point 2000 Trust commissioned Neil Dawson to produce a major contemporary, public artwork for Christchurch.
The sculpture project was led by Art 2000, one of fourteen Turning Point 2000 Advisory Groups. Turning Point 2000 raised the funds for Chalice through grants from The Community Trust and the New Zealand Lottery Grants Board. In addition, Christchurch City Council has met the cost of the foundations, granite base, drainage works and lighting.
