Len Lye Centre

A thrilling tribute to world-renowned New Zealand kinetic artist Len Lye (1901–1980), New Plymouth's Len Lye Centre is an integral part of the excellent Govett-Brewster Art Gallery. From the outside, the center's stunning architecture of shimmering mirrored curtains reflects nearby heritage buildings, and the fascinating interior is a labyrinth of ramps and walkways showcasing Lye's interesting kinetic constructions and innovative short films. Don't leave New Plymouth without also checking out his Wind Wand sculpture, a towering work on the city's often windswept oceanfront esplanade that's pushed and pulled by bold maritime breezes coming from the Tasman Sea.
