Art and Driving — 14.09.11

Stunning artistry, bold design, and exquisite craftsmanship are all attributes close to the heart of the Jaguar brand. They're also ideals that are shared by the Arts Foundation.

We are proud to announce Jaguar is the Official Vehicle Partner of the Arts Foundation of New Zealand.

We celebrate artistic excellence at the Arts Foundation. When selecting a vehicle partner it was clear that the cars should be luxurious and special. They needed to be elegant, have fine lines and be superbly engineered by world-renowned designers. In short, the cars needed to be works of art. For the Arts Foundation there is only one option: Jaguar.

Jaguar has signed a three year renewable agreement with the Arts Foundation as our Official Vehicle Partner. In addition to Jaguar's generous support they are donating $1,000 to the Arts Foundation from every Jaguar car sold to a person associated with the Arts Foundation.

Paul Ricketts, Brand Manager for Jaguar New Zealand, said "Jaguar's passion is to make unique cars that spark the senses. Each Jaguar is made by master craftsmen and celebrates the highest standards in creative design - and it's this Jaguar spirit that also resonates within the arts. We're partnering with the Arts Foundation to invest in New Zealand artists, which like Jaguar, are at the top of their game and push the boundaries of their field".
