The exhibition organisers asked wildlife artists and celebrities to help them raise awareness about the illegal wildlife trade and threat of species extinction by donating a 26-minute sketch or other original artwork of an endangered species, because an elephant is poached for its tusks in the wild every 26 minutes.
Also on Friday, Norwich School opened its Armistice exhibition 'All Fades to Silence' in the Crypt Gallery. The exhibition is a collaboration between pupils studying Design, English and Creative Writing. The pupils attended a workshop at the Castle Museum looking at the permanent and reserve collection of the Norfolk Regimental Museum. The photographs and resulting creative writing and poetry have been presented in a candlelit exhibition, alongside a installation of shadows made to commemorate the 52 Norwich School pupils who fell in World War I.
This unique exhibition shows collection of hare related artwork which has been produced by local artists and local primary schools.
Norwich School is a proud sponsor of GoGo Hares, and our own Hare ‘Sally’ sits proudly outside the gallery by the statue of Nelson. Inspired by Dutch Delftware pottery and designed by current Art & Design Scholars, Sally, celebrates the school’s many connections to local history.
