Art students in Dubbo have the chance to see their design feature at one of the highway entrances into the city through the Western Plains Regional Council’s Rhino Welcome Sculpture Design Competition.
DESIGN A RHINO: Western Plains Regional Council’s Rhino Welcome Sculpture Design Competition is now up and running.
This competition is open to students from years 10 – 12 studying visual arts, visual arts life skills or visual design.
Students will not only help to refresh the rhinos at the city entrances but also shine a light on the zoo’s role in conservation for this species as visitors enter the city.
The plight of rhinos in the wild is under threat with poaching numbers at an alarmingly high rate. If this rate continues it could mean the extinction of these amazing creatures in the near future.
The rhino sculptures help to raise awareness for this species and the important work the zoo does for rhinos here at the zoo but in the wild as well. The sculptures offer students a unique blank canvas to design something that will engage visitors and locals alike and put the city’s vibrant personality on show.The competition closes 12pm on July 29 with the four winners each receiving a prize package valued at over $1200.
All design submission will be displayed at Taronga Western Plains Zoo with the winners announced week commencing August 1.
Entries will be judged by a panel comprising a representative from Orana Arts, Dubbo Chamber of Commerce, Taronga Western Plains Zoo and artist, Jack Randall.For more details: 梧桐夜网dubbo南京夜网419论坛/win/rhino-design-competition.
