Hop in your Easirent hire car this summer and head to the Big Hoot, an outdoor art project that features 89 colourful owls scattered across Birmingham City Centre. The project will be on display to the public until the 27 September 2015.
The Big Hoot which has been created by creative producers ‘Wild in Art’ and in partnership with Birmingham Children’s Hospital features a parliament of brightly coloured owls, which form a trail throughout the city. Stretching from Sutton Coldfield in the north, to Northfield in the South and incorporating the city centre on its journey, the Big Hoot owl trail brings together local businesses, artists, schools and the local community.
Aiming to encourage residents and tourists alike to visit parts of the city that they haven’t visited before, the Big Hoot wants to showcase some of the city’s beautiful open spaces, inspiring buildings and cultural heritage.
The Big Hoot is Birmingham’s largest public art event and is all in aid of charity. Each owl is sponsored by a different business from across the region and at the end of the event, each owl will be auctioned off separately to raise money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
In addition to the 89 colourful owls, there will also be 120 smaller owlets which have been brought to life by the creative talents of local artists, school children and community groups.
More information on how to find the owls can be found online.
