Fred Staub was an Otago-based artist and art educator. He worked at the Dunedin School of Art for 26-years between 1951 and 1977.
Staub bequeathed funds to New Zealand’s Otago Masonic Charitable Trust to establish the Fred Staub Open Art initiative. Funds are gifted twice a year to the Dunedin School of Art Foundation and aimed at promoting engagement with art in the Otago community. Today Fred Staub Open Art supports a programme of free public art seminars and exhibitions in Dunedin.
