Art is hot! Everyone has an opinion. How, for example, can one compare the 20th
and 21st century's' trend of Pop Art with the work of, say, Leonardo DaVinci.
Well art has evolved, and Pop Artists can and do command substantial prices for their
work. They are considered to be the serious contemporary artists of today.
Thus the Rhino designs submitted to The Rhinos Are Coming!!! by todays artists, Pop
and otherwise, famous or emerging, will be selected based on criteria that their
creations must inspire, enchant, entertain, educate and/or intrigue their audience
the public who will appreciate and enjoy The Rhinos Are Coming!!! Public Art Exhibition.

and the Online Auction which is the culmination of the program.

And if raising maximum funds for the cause of saving rhinos is the key objective of this
project, why not include a sprinkling of famous international artists who may also be
interested in contributing their stardom to this fun cause to help bring to an end these
shameful poaching crimes in Africa.
Local and international celebrities too will be invited to submit designs, perhaps
working in collaboration with local artists of their choice. Celebrities' Rhino sculptures
will add to prices acheived at the auction. This is a FUN event and all viable ideas to
increase funds raised will be considered.
Designs will be in good taste and be selected by a panel of art and design experts.
Contracts will be agreed and blank rhinos delivered. Public painting space will be
available for those without sufficient room to work on a life sized rhino sculpture.
The public space will become an attraction in its own right as citizens and visitors
share in the process of Creating Art.
