Antarctica New Zealand bids a fond farewell to Art Brown, former NSF representative in New Zealand.
Arthur ‘Art’ Brown, legendary in Antarctic circles, passed away peacefully on 5th November 2022, aged 87 years.
Art dedicated nearly five decades of polar logistics and operations to both the Arctic and Antarctic. From 1990-2018 He worked out of Christchurch to manage the US Antarctic Program’s involvement in New Zealand.
Art’s enthusiasm, commitment and knowledge helped forge the strong relationship we enjoy today between the New Zealand and United States Antarctic Programmes.
During his tenure, Art hosted many distinguished guests, including the Prime Minister of Norway, Jens Stoltenberg, the former president of Slovakia, Rudolf Schuster, and two Secretary of States: Hillary Clinton and John Kerry.
Antarctica New Zealand sends our deepest condolences to Art’s family.
