St Oswald’s Children’s Hospice has teamed up with Wild in Art to stage Tyne and Wear’s biggest ever mass-participation, public art event – Great North Snowdogs!
The interactive trail will feature more than 50 large scale Snowdog sculptures, inspired by the much loved animated short film, The Snowman™ and The Snowdog, During Autumn and Winter 2016, you will be able to follow the trail, collect points with our dedicated app and to try to see as many of the sculptures as possible.
Snowdogs, beautifully decorated by artists and generously sponsored by local businesses, will be on show for 10 weeks from September 2016, in locations across Tyne and Wear. They will be joined by a pack of little Snowdog sculptures designed by local school children.
After you have enjoyed Great North Snowdogs during its 10-week extravaganza, the large sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for St Oswald’s Hospice.
The trail opens on 19th September – we’ll have to wait and see where Mr Rufferty appears!
Thanks to Mr Hymers and Mrs Hird for organising our involvement with this exciting project.
