On Sunday the 3rd of March a flock of fab owls will be heading Auckland’s way! Over 100 super sized,super rad owls will be scattered around parks, public spaces, malls and libraries ready to be tracked down.
There are 47 giant owls (1.65m) that have been individually designed by Kiwi and International artists including yours truly! Some of the other incredible artists who have created owls include Dick Frizzell, Jeff Thomson, Flox, Peata Larkin, Wayne Youle, Anna Leyland, Weilun Ha and Grace Wright, along with some of New Zealand’s most exciting up and coming creatives. Joining the giant owls are 60 owlets (90cm) – many designed by Auckland school students.
Such a great way to keep the kids entertained – make sure you get involved by downloading the Big Hoot 2018 app from the app store or goole play from the 1st of March and collect rewards as you go.
The 47 giant owls, each a bespoke work of art, will be auctioned off to fundraise for Child Cancer Foundation on Tuesday 29 May in Auckland.
