The Big Sleuth comes to Solihull !
Following the flying success of The Big Hoot, Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity and creative producers Wild in Art have announced that a second trail is planned for 2017, but instead this time the colourful characters will be Sun Bears instead of owls.
The Big Sleuth, so named because sleuth is the collective noun for a group of bears, will see the individually designed sculptures appearing throughout the city and outlying regions, inspiring residents and tourists to uncover Birmingham , Solihull and Sutton Coldfield’s cultural gems and discover areas they may not have before.
The sun bear, also known as the honey bear, has been chosen because it’s the smallest of the worlds eight bear species – making it the perfect choice for the children’s hospital to help it raise vital funds when the bears go to auction.
Funded by corporates from around the region, the sculptures will be brought to life by reginal artists to create the visually stunning trail of art.
Start your trail off in Solihull, why not send us a picture with your bear? It could feature on our website. Solihull town centre will be celebrating the bears arrival throughout the summer , check out www.solihullbid.co.uk for ongoing updates .
