Digital billboards showcasing native New Zealand bird paintings
In collaboration with Predator Free Wellington, Urban Art and Zealandia, six artists including Sofia Minson will have their native New Zealand bird paintings gracing digital billboards in Wellington and around the country.
From 1st May - 15th June 2021 the art of Judi Lapsley Miller, Niels Meyer-Westfeld, Jeanette Blackburn, Hannah Shand, Chimp and Sofia Minson will be celebrating International Dawn Chorus Day, which falls on 2nd May.
Keep your eyes peeled around Wellington
The streets of Wellington will be lit up with these artworks at Urban Art's digital gallery in the foyer of the Wellington Railway. Also view them at Zealandia, Lambton Quay, on the giant screens inside Wellington International Airport and keep watch for more surprise locations around Wellington.
Artworks will be also featured on digital street screens in select cities around the country including Auckland, Christchurch, Hamilton and New Plymouth.
Drawing attention to the work of Predator Free Wellington and Zealandia
The next phase of Predator Free Wellington's eradication will involve 19 suburbs - from Kilbirnie around to Owhiro Bay and up through to the CBD.
"We have gathered an outstanding group of artists showing their unique perceptions and representations of our country’s birdlife. We hope the exposure of these beautiful pieces will continue to create discussion around extinction and wildlife preservation."
- Urban Art's creative director Andrew Hagen
