Add your own Beautiful Beasts to our Summer Exhibition!

Do you have a beautiful pet? Does your child have a best animal-friend who deserves to be celebrated in an exhibition?

This Summer, our free Beautiful Beasts exhibition explores the animal kingdom with sculptures of some of our favourite animals – most of which can be found here in Ireland (although we’re still searching for a real-life Unicorn!).

As part of the exhibition, we want children to get involved and nominate their favourite animals by sending us in a drawing or photo of their beautiful beasts, along with a short description or story about them. We will create a display of all the pictures so you can come and see their picture up on the wall for everyone to see!

At the end of the Summer, everyone who has submitted a photograph will be entered into a prize draw to win a family ticket to the show of your choice in The Ark’s autumn season.

To be part of the exhibition, simply fill out our online form and upload your picture or email it to Don’t forget to give us the details of the children nominating the animals as well as the names of the animals and a bit of information about them and why they’re so beautiful!
