Snowpups at Brighton Museum

posted in: News | 0

The Martlets Hospice has teamed up with Wild in Art to stage a public art trail in Brighton & Hove, 24 September – 27 November.

The sculpture trail features more than 40 large scale Snowdog sculptures, inspired by the much loved animated short film, The Snowman™ and The Snowdog . The Snowdogs, decorated by artists and celebrities, and sponsored by local businesses and organisations, are on show in streets, parks and surprising locations around Brighton & Hove.  They are joined by a pack of Snowdog puppy sculptures designed by local school children.

Snowpups

Museums and Libraries are hosting the schools programme Snowpups. Brighton Museum hosted the launch of the Snowpuppies on Sunday 18 Sept, attended by the Mayor and with around 100 guests from the schools which participated. Guests and visitors also enjoyed a social dog-themed MuseumLab event.

The 22 Snowpups are situated in Brighton Museum, Hove Museum, the Booth, Jubilee Library and Hove Library.

The snowdogs and pups will be auctioned to raise funds for the Martlets hospice. For further info see http://www.snowdogsbythesea.co.uk/
