Flying Fox Adoption Day

Sunday, January 29, 2017 / 3 pm / Buy Tickets

Will you help a flying fox find its forever home?

One hundred of these friendly, hand-woven creatures will soon be left with nowhere to go once we close the exhibition they inhabit — In the Footprint of the Crocodile Man: Contemporary Art of the Sepik River, Papua New Guinea.

But here’s where you can make a difference. We invite you adopt one of these delightfully batty creatures and take home a piece of this extraordinary show.

Join curator Carol E. Mayer on Sunday, January 29 at 3 pm for a special tour and an update on the environmental concerns facing the region and its people, particularly the controversial mining that is set to begin at the head of the river.

A reception will follow, during which you will choose a flying fox — hand woven by Angelina Gumowe from the village of Kaminibit — to bring home with you.

Tickets include a flying fox, MOA admission and the exhibition catalogue. Only 100 available!
