So…… the last visitor left the building and the grill came down as the main building officially closed for development at 5pm last Friday night (the Auckland Art Gallery will still operate as usual out of the Auckland Art Gallery, New Gallery across the road during the development).

The staff congregated to toast the main building on it’s way.

And some fun to be had as we celebrated our individual times in the bulding as it is now before the transformation begins.
