Introducing Elmer’s Big Art Parades – Andersen Press and creative event producers Wild in Art are bringing public art trails featuring 1.1m tall Elmer sculptures to Britain’s towns and cities.
Elmer’s Big Art Parades will consist of sculpture trails inspired by one of the most iconic and widely read children’s book series of all time. Written and illustrated by celebrated children’s author and artist David McKee, Elmer was published by Andersen Press in 1989. Elmer’s Big Art Parades will provide visually stunning trails of art and take place in 2019, 30 years since Elmer was first brought to life in a book. The public art trails, funded by corporate sponsors and raising money for charity, will see blank Elmer sculptures decorated by well-known and talented local artists, and celebrity names.
In 2019 Wild in Art are pleased to be working with the following charity partners. Elmer sculptures are not only significant fundraisers for the hospices but also attract thousands of visitors to the region.
