BANKS PENINSULA SPEED LIMIT REVIEW – CCC are making changes so it’s safer for everyone to get around the peninsula.
After nine weeks of the Pop Up Penguins trail, Wild in Art will be selling the 50 large penguin sculptures at an auction run by Presenting Partner, Harcourts.
Each of the penguins has been designed and decorated by established and emerging artists. Over the summer, the penguins have delighted and entertained thousands of trail followers as they were discovered across the city. After the trail, the little penguins will return to the schools that decorated them and the large penguins will be available to buy by new owners.
We invite interested bidders to attend the auction to purchase one of these unique pieces of art for your home or garden. All penguins will be sold throughout the course of the evening as we celebrate creativity and raise money for Cholmondeley Children’s Centre. Wild in Art will give 75% of the auction proceeds to this well-established local charity.
