Newport Aquarium
PenguinPalooza, Frog Bog
Newport, KY

KD+P was pleased to work with Newport Aquarium as they reinvented their penguin experience into Penguin Palooza. Our role involved graphic design treatments for walls as well as photo-ops and an interactive wall for children. The exhibit also included a new timed show element with a live performer and digital animation, substantial renovations to the penguin habitat and architectural remedies to address existing exit challenges.

KD+P teamed with MurphyCatton, Inc. to design/build this larger-than-life frog experience. Guests can explore Newport Aquariums’ wonderful collection of frogs from around the world while engulfed in an environment that challenges their perception of who is viewing whom! A multi-level themed climbing structure is built around aquaria and terrariums with frogs in their typical habitats. To complete this intimate gallery, a number of interactive exhibit components line the gallery walls to educate, entertain and challenge even the most enthusiastic amphibian lover.
