SuperDragons are a public art exhibition which is part of the Newport Festival 2010.

60 large fibreglass sculptures have been created by Wild in Art LinkExternal link and decorated by local artists and community groups. They are being displayed at various locations around Newport for 10 weeks from July 18th 2010 before being auctioned for charity.

Sadly, a number of SuperDragons have been vandalised. Some have been moved to more secure locations and others may be in the Dragons' Den LinkExternal link for repair.

Another 50 mini SuperDragons have been decorated by primary schools and are being displayed in retail units around the city.
