If Machu Picchu, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World is on your must-see list, take a side trip to Dolphin Mall this summer for an interactive and entertaining glimpse of Peru along with events, prizes and a big dose of fun.
In partnership with PromPeru: The Commission on the Promotion of Peru for Export and Tourism, Dolphin Mall will feature Peru-themed promotions from June 15 through Aug. 11.
“We’re excited to bring a little bit of South America to Dolphin Mall this summer,” says Madelyn Bello-Calvar, marketing & sponsorship director, “and to partner with PromPeru to showcase some of the rich culture and legacy of Peru.”
Interactive Floor Graphic of Machu Picchu
The centerpiece of the promotional partnership is a spectacular, 3D interactive floor graphic of the fabled Machu Picchu, the Incan citadel named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in a 2007 international Internet poll. World-renowned for her engaging, large-scale, 3D street paintings and chalk drawings, American artist Tracy Lee Stum has been commissioned to create a 12 x 18-foot, 3D graphic of Machu Picchu for shoppers to visit, photograph and enjoy. The interactive work can be found by the Information Booth in Ramblas 3 from June 15 through Aug. 11.
