Maggie’s Penguin Parade, Dundee 2018

These Antarctic invaders captured the hearts of young and old alike, but they were also a visual reminder of the important work done by Maggie’s in Dundee, based in the Frank Gehry-designed cancer care centre in the grounds of Ninewells Hospital. This parade was an important fundraising initiative to support the centre in Dundee and an invitation to visitors and locals to explore the local area as part of a free day out for children and families.

The mould for the unique penguin sculpture was designed by artist and Senior Lecturer at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Janice Aitken after researching penguins at St Andrew’s Aquarium and a penguin specimen at the University of Dundee’s D’Arcy Thomson Museum.
