The Penguin Post has learned that the Go Penguins auction of Penguin Art is to go global.
We’ve already raved about the Liverpool public art extravaganza Go Penguins, and now they’ve announced that the penguin auction of Go Penguin art will now be opened up to the world via the internet allowing bidders to pick up their favorite penguin(s) from anywhere in the world!
This move will maximize the potential for the nominated charities to benefit from the heralded public penguin displays that electrified the city this winter.
The auction will take place from 9am ( English Time which makes it 3am EST) on Wednesday 3 February and close at approximately 2pm on Friday 5 February. Potential buyers must make sure they register on the site in plenty of time to bid.
The Go Penguins organizers are also delighted to announce that due to public demand, the penguins will again go on public view for one last time at St George’s Hall, Liverpool on 3 and 4 February, so the general public can say their final goodbyes to the much loved waddlers before they head for their new homes.
Having received great international media coverage to maximize the full potential for the charities Go Penguins had to find an alternative way of opening up the auction to everyone, allowing people from anywhere in the world to bid. This way, everyone benefits, none more-so than the charities.
Charities benefiting from the auction include WWF – For a living planet.
