Gromit Unleashed 2

Aloha Everyone,

Gromit Unleashed 2  is a public arts trail currently taking place in Bristol. Gromit is Nick Park's Academy Award®-winning character. The exhibit features 67 giant sculptures designed by high-profile artists, designers, innovators and local talent. It is an ingenious way to get residents and visitors involved in searching for these sculptures and in the process see Bristol on foot.

Art works are usually positioned in iconic locations around Bristol but sometime you really have to search for them. For example, we found one inside the Marriott Hotel bar and another on the second floor of a museum. There are 3 characters including Gromit, Wallace (Gromit’s human friend), and arch nemesis Feathers McGraw.

This art trail is a sequel to Gromit Unleashed which was originally introduced in 2013. The sculptures will adorn Bristol and the surrounding area from July 2 to September 2, 2018.

At the conclusion, the sculptures will be  auctioned off to benefit Bristol Children’s Hospital.

Aloha -- Cathi
