From the What's New archive - March 2011...
If a full size white fibreglass horse landed in your backyard you’d probably assume it was an April Fool’s Day joke. But when the horses started to land in the backyards of Lucy Lawless, Ra Vincent (sculptor on the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and King Kong movies), Lindy Leuschke, The Mad Butcher and Karen Walker, complete with Resene paints and a sign saying ‘Paint Me’, the race to the finish line was just getting started.
The horsing around was all part of the Resene Fastest Art Exhibition in conjunction with Ellerslie Races and Auckland Cup Week. Thanks to some impressive creativity and lavish doses of Resene paint, the horses were seen about the city showing off their new paintwork and vying for bids. At the end of Cup Week, each horse was auctioned off with funds going to the artist’s chosen charity and the most popular horse, as determined by Facebook ‘likes’ winning an extra donation for their charity.
And to ensure their new owners can enjoy their paintwork for many years to come most of the horses sport a final coating of recently released Resene Uracryl GraffitiShield.
