From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:22 pm on 6 July 2015

How do we sell New Zealand to the world? An exhibition called Selling the Dream is on now at the Rotorua Museum exploring how, in the past, we've promoted tourism. It includes more than 50 lithographs and silk-screen prints portraying an idealised New Zealand. The tourism posters were produced by some of the country's leading artists between the 1920s and 1960s.The curator at the Rotorua Museum is Karl Chitham.
