Back in 2004 the 'Cow Parade', an international public art exhibition featuring fibreglass sculptures of cows decorated by local artists, came to Manchester city centre.
This is much, much more exciting...
Led by the internationally renowned Aardman Animations, 'Gromit Unleashed' is a similar public art exhibition set in the city of Bristol. Giant fibreglass sculptures of Gromit, standing 5ft tall, will be 'unleashed' onto the streets of Bristol and the surrounding area.
Each sculpture will be individually designed and created by invited artists, creating a trail of sixty unique pieces of art and will form an art exhibition for ten weeks over the summer of 2013. No artists are yet to be confirmed, they're still accepting proposals, so if you are an artist, designer, illustrator, or creative and would like to find out more about submitting a design head over to the 'Gromit Unleashed' website now!
At the end of the public art exhibition, the sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit's Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children's Hospital Charity. We want one already!
