Martlets has teamed up with Wild in Art and Aardman to stage the biggest ever mass-participation, public art event in Brighton and surrounding areas – Shaun by the Sea.
‘Shaun by the Sea’ will see 42 individually designed Shaun the Sheep sculptures and 1 book bench installed throughout the city for 8 weeks. Alongside this, 77 little Shauns created by schools, nurseries, community groups and care homes will also be displayed. The trail of big and little Shauns covers the whole of the community which Martlets serves, and the bold, brave and colourful designs will shine a light on the life-changing impact of hospice care.
Each of the Shauns has been sponsored by local businesses and organisations, creating strong relationships between Martlets and the business community. At the end of the 8 week trail, the sculptures will be auctioned off to raise money to enable Martlets to keep caring for people facing the toughest of times.
