BIG HOOT IPSWICH
PAINTED SCULPTURE &
WINDOW DISPLAY ILLUSTRATIONS
I was commissioned as one of 50+ artists to paint a large owl sculpture for the Big Hoot Ipswich Art Trail 2022.
My sculpture sponsor Coes then used my matching sculpture illustrations to decorate their shop windows for Summer. The project fee for the window displays was donated to St Elizabeth Hospice.
My sculpture raised £2600 in the auction and a total of £163k was raised from the 50+ sculptures auctioned.
More about the art trail:
St Elizabeth Hospice and Wild in Art produced the trail for Ipswich to raise valuable, much-needed funds for St Elizabeth Hospice services providing care and support for those living with life-limiting or progressive illnesses.
Funds are raised through visitors downloading the trail app, and purchasing merchandise. There will also be an auction of all owls at the end of the trail. There are 50 Big Hoots and 65 Little Hoots in all.
The trail also attracted thousands of visitors to Ipswich and contributed financial benefits to the local economy.
