Calling Artists to Bear-mingham For The Big Sleuth
Fancy putting your artistic skills to practise and presented all across Birmingham? Then the Big Sleuth needs you.
The Big Sleuth will bring together local businesses, charities, schools and community groups to transform hundreds of blank, giant Sun Bears with imaginative and individual works.
Artists will be given the chance to decorate in any artistic form, Wild in Art’s latest sculpture of a Sun Bear, created specifically for Birmingham. The Big Sleuth event will then see a hundred giant bear sculptures displayed across the city to help raise funds for Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.
Successful Sun Bear designs will be presented to the event’s sponsors in February and commissioned artists will receive an honorarium of £850. At the end of the event, the sculptures will be sold at auction to raise much-needed funds for Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.
A free, family-friendly event, The Big Sleuth will see 100 giant bear sculptures (and bear cubs created by schools and young people) leave their paw prints all over the West Midlands as the city gets set to be known as Bear-mingham in 2017.
