Billboard art Te Tuhi, 13 Reeves Road, Pakuranga From March 7 to July 12 ARTIST Bryn Roberts is the latest creative expert to transform the large public billboards opposite Te Tuhi public art gallery in Pakuranga's Reeves Road. For his triptych artwork, entitled Why Can't We Eat the Sun?, he creates images advertising "assorted whole foods laden with the visual language of health food marketing". Because the billboards do not depict commercial branding or an obvious agenda, the imagery "aestheticises nourishment while resisting the corporatisation of lifestyle trends". Viewing the art billboards is free. Military tattoo Lloyd Elsmore Park, Pakuranga Sunday, from 10am THE Howick Lions in the Park and Military Tattoo gets under way in Pakuranga's Lloyd Elsmore Park at 10am this Sunday.
