Our Owl is revealed …

We are very excited to give you a glimpse of our completed owl before she hits the streets of Auckland

We are very excited to give you a glimpse of our completed owl (To the Land Where the Ponga Tree Grows, or as named by our artists daughter, Tabitha) before she hits the streets of Auckland as part of the free public art trail featuring 47 giant owls.  Each owl has been turned into a bespoke piece of art by a Kiwi or International artist, with works by Dick Frizzell, Jeff Thomson, Greer Clayton, Flox, Weilun Ha, Peata Larking, Grace Wright, Jessica Pearless, Tabitha’s artist Juilet Best, and more.  Joining the giant owls are 60 owlets (90cm) – many of these designed by Auckland school students.

From Saturday 3rd March, 2018, the owls will be display for nine weeks in public spaces, parks, malls and libraries across Auckland.  At the end of the trail the owls will be auctioned to fundraise for Child Cancer Foundation.

You can find them all using the trail map within the Big Hoot 2018 app – available to download from the App Store or Google Play from 3rd March, and collect rewards as you go. By visiting the Hesketh Henry owl through the app you have the chance to go into a draw to win a limited edition art print “By the Light of the Moon II” by Juilet Best. Hard copy maps are available from select locations including Hesketh Henry reception area – visit www.thebighoot.co.nz for more information.

In June 2017 Hesketh Henry ran an  in-house children’s colouring in competition, where the children had to colour in ‘Big Hoot’.  The winner of this took home a mini owl or “owlet” for their school to decorate.  Pip Lee from Point Chevalier School took out the first prize with Point Chevalier School being the lucky recipients of the owlet.  The completed owlet, Ruru will land at Westfield St Lukes (near the Kathmandu store).

Hesketh >Henry is very proud to be supporting the Child Cancer Foundation by becoming an Owl sponsor for “The Haier Big Hoot”.  If you would like to donate to this amazing organisation please go to www.thebighoot.co.nz. All donations will go directly to the Child Cancer Foundation.
