Working with Lyttelton Museum, Holden identified 23 historical figures connected to the town, from early settlers and land surveyors to a landscape artist and prominent suffrage campaigner. For each person, she found a present day local connected to them, either through occupation or personal relationships to serve as a ‘living canvas’ for the portraits in the exhibition.
Julia will be joined by local resident and business owner David Bundy who became 'The Lyttelton Butcher'.
