For 12 weeks, 60 sculptures, all uniquely decorated by artists and school children, will appear in locations across Ōtautahi. They form a fun, free, family-friendly art trail for residents and visitors to discover.

A follow up trail to the popular Pop-Up Penguins and Christchurch Stands Tall’s giraffes, the Laura Fergusson Brain Injury Trust has partnered with global public art specialists Wild in Art to bring a new sculpture trail to Christchurch and surrounding areas. The latest sculpture is based on the beloved children’s book character Elmer the Patchwork Elephant, and the trail will be raising funds to build a new campus for the Laura Fergusson Brain Injury Trust that unites all of their services under one roof and at one location.

Download the App or checkout the website to find the map and start hunting! The App allows you to collect the sculptures, earn rewards and vote for your favourites. It is a great way to explore Ōtautahi and surrounding areas this summer. Why not challenge yourself to try and visit them all!

Following the trail, the legacy of Elmer’s Ōtautahi Elephants will live on as the sculptures decorated by artists will be auctioned off to raise vital funds for the Laura Fergusson Brain Injury Trust.
