Brightly Colored, Oversized Meerkat Sculptures Perfect for Photos and Fun


WHAT: San Diegans have been through so much in the past year, but just like meerkats, through kinship and community, we’re learning to grow together. To continue a feeling of optimism and fun, The Shoppes at Carlsbad is treating visitors to a much-deserved, playful experience with oversized, brightly-colored meerkat sculptures as part of a national tour, kicking off in Carlsbad.

Featuring 30 colorful meerkats standing nearly four feet tall, "The Meerkat Meetup" runs May 28 - June 28 at The Shoppes at Carlsbad on level 1 near H&M. Perfect for fun photos and social media posts, the mall has partnered with artist collective Cracking Art to bring this free, awe-inspiring exhibition to San Diego County. Filled with vibrant sculptures made of recyclable plastic, the installation brings a community-wide conversation about caring for our environment and each other. Guests can interact with and discover groups of meerkats standing in harmony, bringing a sense of wonder and togetherness throughout the mall.

The Meerkat Meetup will visit 10 properties and nine states over the course of five months beginning at The Shoppes at Carlsbad.

11 a.m. - 7 p.m. daily
