The Greenwood Collective invites Seattle area residents to the Penguins on the March silent auction on Friday, August 14th, between 6 â€“ 9pm, during the monthly Art Up Greenwood-Phinney art walk.
Fifty-four Seattle artists of all ages and experience levels painted, embellished and decorated fabricated penguins. This community celebration of art and wildlife conservation is inspired by Woodland Park Zooâ€™s brand new Humboldt penguin exhibit, which opened in May.
These penguins have been migrating through Seattle neighborhoods including Greenwood, Phinney Ridge, Ballard, Fremont and Wallingford since early June. About 30 of these penguins will be auctioned off to benefit Woodland Park Zooâ€™s field conservation program. Woodland Park Zoo supports 38 wildlife conservation projects in 50 countries worldwide, including the Humboldt Penguin Conservation Center at Punta San Juan.
