Cheshire Rhino mania

Rhino Mania: Call for Design Submissions

Artists, individuals and groups from across Cheshire are invited to put forward designs for Chester’s very own mass participation public art programme.

Rhino Mania is a celebration of arts, culture and the environment brought to you by Chester Renaissance who has collaborated with Wild in Art - the team who brought Go Superlambanana and Go Penguins to Liverpool.

From early July – for ten weeks – herds of rhinos, evocative of fun, creativity and self expression – will form a trail around the cultural and retail quarters, creating a ‘stampede’ to act as the visual centerpiece to highlight Chester’s extraordinary cultural offer.

Rhino Design and Artwork

Design proposals can be in any art form - from traditional to new media, from sound and video installations to poetry and photography. Designs should be appropriate for public display and family audiences. Designs that are overtly religious, political or sexual in nature will not be accepted.

Deadline for design submissions: Friday 29th January 2010

Artist’s Packs can be downloaded from For further information please contact Amber Knipe at Chester Performs or call 01244 409113
