Unveiled last week, Sara Hughes' latest public artwork brings colour and light to a bus shelter on Willow Street in Tauranga. Midnight Sun was commissioned by Supercut Projects in collaboration with Tauranga City Council and features 96 individual panels of glass to capture the final setting of the sun on the eve of the Winter Solstice. The artwork wraps around to the front of Tauranga Art Gallery.

Sara says: "At its essence, Midnight Sun is about a sunset that never sets, it's about holding on to that feeling you get watching a sun sink toward the horizon. That is a universal experience, something everyone has experienced. I wanted to make an artwork for this site to make a difference, my hope is that it will spread a warm glow of optimism".
