Raising funds

Elmer’s Big Art Parades help raise awareness and vital funds for charities and hospices.

Welcome to Elmer’s Big Art Parades

Andersen Press and creative event producers Wild in Art are turning the world patchwork by creating public art trails featuring giant Elmer sculptures.

Elmer’s Big Art Parades are 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. The public art trails, funded by corporate sponsors and raising money for charity, see blank Elmer sculptures decorated by well-known and talented local artists, and celebrity names.
