A 501(c)(3) charity created to ensure the survival of all rhinos. With efforts of talented artists, we aid those involved in securing their future.


The Art of Life

Most conservation groups, but not all, rely on the passion and willingness to help. Oftentimes, those who contribute to a conservation cause are already motivated by their own love of animals. The Horns and Heroes Project's approach is to also reach those who otherwise may not know of the horrible situation rhinos face. We offer a new avenue to an otherwise common fundraising formula. The Horns and Heroes Project promotes a community driven art show and auction that inspires artists, collectors and enthusiasts to become conservationists and leave with the understanding of the future of rhinos.​​

A piece of art, themed after a rhino, is sculpted, molded and cast in fifty or so individual sculptures. Each Identical sculpture is given to an artist to recreate in their own style and vision. Painters, illustrators, special effects make-up artists and photographers, just to name a few, were asked to participate in the event. Casted sculptures are made from roto-cast foam-filled resin.
For the 2014 Horns and Heros Project Event, world renowned SFX make-up artist Barry Anderson was asked to sculpt and mold the 2014 show piece which all participating artists used as a starting point to create their original pieces.

Mr. Anderson is known for his work in sucj films as Dawn of the Dead and the Jeepers Creepers franchise.

He chose a bust of a black rhino as this years symbol. The bust measured about 10-12 inches tall and about 14 inches wide. The sculpt was made in roto-cast foam-filled resin.
