Take part in the voting to choose the color of penguins that will flock to Bentonville in early spring. Voting ends November 29th, so go vote today for your favorite penguin color - Orange, Green or Fuchsia! Read their blog article for information on the new hotel and the penguin invasion.  Here is an excerpt from a release posted on their website: 

21c Museum Hotel announced today that a flock of the company’s signature, limited edition penguin sculptures by Italian artists Cracking Art Group will travel to Bentonville, but the color is up to 21c Museum Hotels’ fans and residents of Northwest Arkansas. Online voting begins today on the 21c Museum Hotels Facebook page, and fans may choose from orange, fuchsia or green. The hotel, scheduled to the first quarter of 2013, will combine a contemporary art museum, 104 room hotel and The Hive restaurant led by chef Matthew McClure.
“We are inspired by the communal spirit of Bentonville,” said Steve Wilson, Founder and CEO, 21c Museum Hotels. “We hope that the hotel’s flock of penguins will become a symbol for this community as the Red Penguin has in Louisville, and we are eager to see which color the people here embrace as their own.”
Online voting begins on Monday, October 29, and will be open until Thursday, November 29. Votes will be collected at 21c Museum Hotels’ Facebook page. The winning color will be announced in early December.
