Local Bristol artist is to create Bluefin’s Shaun in the City sculpture
Bluefin is proud to announce that Bristol artist Laura Cramer is to create its Shaun in the City sculpture. The charity sculpture trail will feature 70 individually-designed sculptures of Aardman’s Shaun the Sheep, and follows the hugely popular ‘Shaun in the City’ trail in London, visited by hundreds of thousands of people.
The sculptures will be installed in iconic locations across Bristol, before being auctioned, with proceeds going to The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity. Bluefin can reveal the artist creating its sculpture is local talent Laura Cramer.
Mark Westgarth, Managing Director of Bluefin Professions, said: “We are very pleased to be a sponsor of Shaun in the City. The Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity, is a very worthwhile charity and one which is particularly important to us. Shaun will be grazing close to home on the outskirts of Castle Park, opposite our office in Castlemead. His close proximity to Bristol’s biggest shopping complex Cabot Circus means that he’ll be admired by plenty of visitors.
“It’s an honour that local artist Laura Cramer will be preparing Shaun for his summer holidays and we are looking forward to her design being unveiled”
