Our Art Installations in Chicago Are Live!
Blake Jones’ three new art installations demand Groupon stop selling “devastating deals.”
In partnership with Chicago-based artist, Blake Jones, we’ve launched art installations around Chicago to bring attention to our Groupon campaign. We’re continuing to urge Groupon, the major travel and discount company based in Chicago, to stop selling deals to venues where wild animals are exploited for entertainment and profit. Venues include marine amusement parks, illegitimate animal “sanctuaries,” and roadside zoos.
Using his signature bunny character, Jones has created eye-catching designs that will be displayed on three billboards throughout Chicago for the month of October. The designs feature several wild animals protesting Groupon’s profiting from cruelty and urging it to stop selling “devastating deals.”
