On Thin Ice: An art installation for a cause

MALLGOERS may be surprised to find life size polar bears all over SM Aura Premier’s Skypark just as summer has set in. 

Aiming to educate the public about the endangered plight of the polar bears, On Thin Ice: An Art Installation for a Cause is a joint project between the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the world’s largest conservation organization and SM Cares.

Surrounding the display are QR codes to prompt guests to visit WWF Philippines’ website and become a member. 

The exhibit, which is also part of the #ArtinAura campaign, depicts polar bears seeking shelter in the tropical space of the Philippines, as if to symbolize the ongoing loss of their natural sea ice habitat. Given that they are apex predators, polar bears regulate the food chain and play an important role in the overall health of the marine environment.

Through the years, SM Aura Premier has been a strong advocate of the environment, garnering a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification that verifies the building’s green features, stating that the design, construction, operations, and maintenance of SM Aura’s building is resource efficient, high performing, healthy, and cost efficient.

On Thin Ice, An Art Installation for a Cause will be on display until May 31, 2018 at the Skypark of SM Aura Premier.
