巨大的氣球狗在斯溫頓上空形成小徑

30多個雕塑--被稱為Swindogs--將被放置在整個斯溫頓,從7月中旬開始供當地人和遊客欣賞。

在 "大狗藝術之路 "的標題下,它們將形成一條免費的步行路線,穿過該鎮的公園和知名地標。

每個兩米高(6.5英尺)的狗都將由不同的藝術家繪製。

組織者希望這條狗道將幫助當地人重新發現該鎮的一些歷史性公園和街道,同時也帶來成千上萬的遊客。

全球藝術製作人Wild in Art曾在伍斯特和劍橋舉辦過狗道活動,它與Julia's House合作建立了狗道。

朱莉亞之家首席執行官馬丁-愛德華茲說。"我們非常高興能在2023年將這個大膽而獨特的活動帶到斯溫頓。

"我們很高興能支持該鎮蓬勃發展的藝術場景,並鼓勵家庭探索他們的本地區域。"

"我毫不懷疑,氣球狗將吸引居民和遊客的想象力。"

學校、托兒所和社區團體也將被邀請在今年秋季參與該項目,並為他們自己的迷你Swindog小狗雕塑進行設計,這將成為主要的家庭友好藝術路線的一部分。

斯溫頓的企業被邀請贊助他們自己的Swindog,以幫助籌款。

該活動將在9月初的一個盛大活動中結束,然後將雕塑拍賣出去。

Hannah Dosanjh是其中一位藝術家,他將用自己的設計為Swindog作畫。

當地藝術家Hannah Dosanjh是將創造他們自己的特殊雕塑的人之一。

"在過去的兩年裡,我比以往任何時候都更相信,只要花時間在綠色的開放空間,就會對我們的心理健康產生積極的影響"。


More than 30 of the sculptures - known as Swindogs - will be placed throughout Swindon, to be enjoyed by locals and visitors from mid July onwards.

Under the title pf the Big Dog Art Trail, they will form a free walking route through the town's parks and past well-known landmarks.

Each of the two-metre high (6.5ft) dogs will be painted by a different artists.

Organisers hope the dog trail will help locals rediscover some of the town's historic parks and streets, and also bring in thousands of visitors.

Global art producer Wild in Art, which has previously hosted trails in Worcester and Cambridge, is partnering with Julia's House to set up the trail.

Julia's House CEO Martin Edwards said: "We're so excited to bring this bold and unique event to Swindon in 2023.

"We're delighted to be supporting the thriving art scene in the town and encouraging families to explore their local area."

"I have no doubt that the balloon dog will capture the imaginations of residents and visitors alike."

Schools, nurseries and community groups will also be invited to get involved in the project in autumn this year and create designs for their own mini Swindog puppy sculptures, which will form part of the main family-friendly art trail.

Businesses in Swindon are being invited to sponsor their own Swindog to help with fundraising.

The trail will conclude with a grand event in early September before the sculptures are each auctioned off.
