BAL supports mosaic artist for Robin Hood-themed sculpture trail

September 2018

BAL has supported award-winning mosaic artist Julie Vernon by donating the adhesives and grout to create a stunning robin sculpture for Hoodwinked 2018.  Royal Robin Redbreast is one 33 statues – each with its own unique design – on display around Nottingham from July to September as part of the Robin Hood-themed art trail.

The project was organised by Nottingham City Council in partnership with Wild at Art, which has delivered similar public art events such as The Big Sleuth in Birmingham last year.  Once the trail has finished in September, the statues will be taken away and put up for auction in September with proceeds going to Nottinghamshire Hospice.

Julie Vernon’s design, sponsored by Castle Rock Brewery, has been on display outside Nottingham Railway Station and was inspired by the history of Royal connections to Nottingham Castle.

BAL’s Alex Underwood said: “We were delighted to be able to support Julie for this fantastic sculpture trail that will transform Nottingham into the playground of Robin Hood – the city’s infamous outlaw.  Julie’s Royal design is a fantastic piece of artwork that will welcome visitors and commuters into the city on a daily basis.”
