Rhinos are charging through town

Imagine this, a huge crash of rhinos, covered in all sorts of colours, stampeding wildly through the streets. Sounds interesting right?

Then you may be interested in Wild! Rhinos from Sunday 2 February to Monday 28 April 2014. You won't be dodging the colourful rhinos charging through the streets of Sydney though, so you don't have to worry about being trampled by them. But, there will be all sorts of wildly colourful rhino sculptures for your eyes to feast on.

Up to 75 life-sized hipster rhinos have been sponsored by business of all sorts, and painted by various local schools, artists, and community groups, in order to create a stunning world-class sculpture trail. Starting from the Sydney Harbour foreshore, the trail continues through the Blue Mountains to Dubbo and the Central West area of NSW.

There will be all sorts of rhino art on display such as fine art, graffiti, mosaic, metal work, and embroidery, to name just a few. The amazing creativity will blow you away. So prepare yourselves for what you're about to see and experience. Expect drama, lots of colours and heaps of fun.

This huge public art exhibition aims to increase knowledge and understanding of Taronga Zoo's outstanding Black Rhino breeding program and in-situ conservation. In addition, it helps to raise awareness for the plight of all rhino species as well as the valuable funds required to support these projects. After the event, each sculpture will go under the hammer at a charity auction which will also go towards Taronga's conservation programs.

So keep an eye out for these rhinos around the place!
