Welcome to Gromit Unleashed!
Led by the internationally renowned Aardman Animations, Gromit Unleashed is a public art exhibition in the city of Bristol. Giant fibreglass sculptures of Gromit, standing 5ft tall, will be 'unleashed' onto the streets of Bristol and the surrounding area.
Each sculpture will be individually designed and created by invited artists, creating a trail of eighty unique pieces of art and will form an art exhibition for ten weeks over the summer of 2013.
At the end of the public art exhibition, the sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit's Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children's Hospital Charity.
I can't wait to see how Gromit will look decorated by so many different artists.
The Grand Appeal is a charity close to my heart and I hope that Gromit Unleashed will hugely contribute much-needed funds for the Appeal.

The charity supports Bristol Children’s Hospital, one of only a few specialist children’s hospitals in the UK providing life-saving surgery, care and treatment to children on a local, national and international scale. The hospital is now expanding to create one of the most influential children’s hospitals in Europe.
Specialist paediatric healthcare and pioneering treatment require constant investment. By supporting Gromit Unleashed, you will be helping to save the lives of sick children. Treatment unimaginable a decade ago is now within reach, and with your support we can make this happen.
