Pop-up Penguins

Ōtautahi Christchurch has been taken over by a colony of decorated penguins – can you find them all?

This public art trail includes 50 large penguin sculptures, sponsored by companies and decorated by established and emerging artists and 65 little penguins decorated by local schools as part of the Pop UP Penguins Learning Programme.

The popular penguins will be waddling their way to locations across Christchurch and will highlight themes including climate change, community, Antarctica, creativity and exploration.

At the end of the art trail the large penguins will be sold at auction to raise money for Cholmondeley Children’s Centre.
