The Smurfs, the classic Belgian cartoon created by comic artist Peyo, is heading to Hong Kong this summer as part of an Asian Art Tour.
Harbour City in Hong Kong will be transformed into a “We’re All Smurfs!” village, complete with 35, 1-meter tall Smurfs, through Aug. 21. The village will also include a 6-meter mushroom house where guests can play interactive games with other Smurfs by utilizing AR technology.
The Smurfs exhibition will also include the world premiere of Peyo’s original works at “The Smurfs House of Stories” at the gallery by the Harbour.
Additionally, Harbour City invited two local miniature artists to create models based on key elements of eight classic “Smurfs” comic strips.
Meanwhile, a pop-up store, featuring a 4-meter high Smurf flying above to greet guests, will include limited edition collectibles including a wood carved Smurf figure and The Hong Kong style Smurfette figure in red, white and blue dress.
Finally, Harbour City will open The Smurfs Summer School to teach kids different skills including farming, drawing, magic performance and more. In addition, kids will receive a badge for each skill and will have the chance to attend a graduation ceremony to become one of the Smurfs.
