Penguins on the March - The Greenwood Collective Auction August 14th

You are cordially invited to The Greenwood Collective
Silent Auction for Penguins on the March…

The Greenwood Collective and Woodland Park Zoo would like to extend an invitation to you to attend the Penguins on the March silent auction at The Greenwood Collective on Friday, August 14th, between 6 – 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 as a community celebration of art and wildlife conservation, inspired by Woodland Park Zoo’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.

On August 14th, thirty of these penguins will be auctioned off to benefit Woodland Park Zoo’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.

WHEN: Friday, August 14, 2009
6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Auctions close at 8:00 and 8:30 p.m.
Winning bids will be announced and art distributed by 9:00 p.m.

WHERE: The Greenwood Collective
8537 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103

Auction bonus: Personalized ornamental anchovy

Generous auction winners who bid a minimum of $1,000 for wildlife conservation will also receive their name (or that of a family, friend or loved one) etched onto an ornamental anchovy, inspired by the favorite food of the Humboldt penguin. These etched anchovies will be embedded into a shoal of schooling fish at the new west entry plaza near the penguin exhibit. The west entry is set to open in 2010.

Good News, This will not be your last chance to bid on these penguins. The remaining 25-30 penguins will migrate to a final auction on September 11th at the grand opening of Piper Village in the Greenwood neighborhood.
