PETER BEARD is participating in Elephant Parade, a large scale outdoor art exhibition taking place in London, UK showcasing life size baby elephant sculptures, each uniquely created into works of art by 258 artists from around the world. The exhibition has been created by Mark Shand’s charity, Elephant Family.
It is an innovative fundraising and awareness campaign that shines a multi-colored spotlight on the urgent crisis faced by the critically endangered Asian elephant. As London’s biggest public outdoor art event, Elephant Parade is 100% green in theme with a goal of raising funds for key Elephant Conservation projects across Asia and securing a vital wildlife corridor that connects forest fragments and provides a migratory lifeline for Asian elephants and other species.
Prior to the Live Auction on June 30th, Peter’s elephant, Mammouth Metaphor, was located under ‘The Nelson Stair’ within one of London’s favorite cultural and artistic tourist destinations, Somerset House. For more information on how to get there, please visit http://www.somersethouse.org.uk/
Location Duration: May 4 – July 4, 2010
