Pop Up Penguins

Wild in Art, in partnership with Harcourts, is bringing a new public art trail to Christchurch this spring – Pop Up Penguins!

50 large penguin sculptures - all uniquely decorated by artists - will appear in our streets, parks and opens spaces. For 10 weeks, Pop Up Penguins will deliver a feel-good, free and family-friendly event that brings communities together to celebrate their city through creativity.

We need you to bring the penguin sculptures to life!

Artists and creatives are warmly invited to submit designs to decorate the penguin sculptures that will be included on the Pop Up Penguins trail. Your imagination, skills and innovation will bring each penguin sculpture to life, giving them character and personality.

The invitation is open to new and established artists and creatives to submit designs to decorate the sculptures. The designs will be presented to the Pop Up Penguin sponsors who will choose which ones to go on their sponsored penguin.

Designs are welcome in any medium – traditional to new media, fine art to illustrations, graffiti and mosaic. Whatever the art form, the organisers are keen to add drama, fun and a creative flourish to Pop Up Penguins.

Register now, download the Artist Pack and submit your design.

Design submission deadline is midnight on 31 March 2020.
