Artists for Penguins Required!

Pop Up Penguins

Pop Up Penguins is bringing giant penguins to the streets of Christchurch.

We are inviting new and established artists to submit designs to decorate the fibre-glass sculptures and bring them to life.

We will then present the designs to the Pop Up Penguins sponsors who will choose designs to go on their sponsored penguin. Designs are welcome in any medium - traditional to new media, fine art to illustrations, graffiti and mosaic.

For more information, go to www.popuppenguins.co.nz where you can download the Artist Pack and submit your design. Design submission deadline is midnight on 31st March 2020.
