SkyBlues is a 11 metre tall Stainless steel and neon sculpture by Bill Culbert located on Jervois Quay in Wellington.
Bill Culbert describes this work as: “Fifteen vertical blue neon lines rising from steel poles five meters high. The neon some 2-3 meters high are in three dimensional space and each neon is as a corkscrew. The density of the fifteen lines will give a form in depth to the work; with visual overlaps as the viewer moves - SkyBlues is light energy, the verticals are drawn lines that move, shimmer, swirl blue in the cityscape.”
Presented to the city in 2006. The principal funder was TOWER Group, with major donations from Creative New Zealand and the Wellington City Council.
Bill Culbert is renowned for his work in neon and other light forms.
