Andrew Grant Stand Tall

The biggest public art event ever seen in Worcester will take the city by storm next summer as gentle, giant giraffes stand tall in our midst.

Over 25 huge giraffe sculptures will be majestically towering over residents and visitors for ten weeks in 2018 for Worcester Stands Tall – a Wild in Art event brought to the city by St Richard’s Hospice.

Worcester Stands Tall will see at least 25 individually designed, beautifully created, 2.5m tall giraffe sculptures appearing throughout the city’s streets, parks and open spaces, inspiring residents and visitors to uncover the city’s cultural gems and discover areas they may not have explored before.

The sculptures will be funded by companies and individuals from around the county and Andrew Grant are delighted to be sponsoring one of them. They will be brought to life by regional and national artists to create a stunning trail of art.

At the end of the project the sculptures will be auctioned to raise vital funds for the free on-going care and support offered by St Richard’s Hospice for people affected by life-limiting illnesses.

Wild in Art is one of the UK’s leading creative producers of spectacular public art events and previous trails, such as The Big Hoot in Birmingham and GoGoGorillas in Norwich have been massive public success stories as well as raising vital funds for charity.

Tricia Cavell, Fundraising Director for St Richard’s, said: “We’re really excited at the thought of majestic giraffes set against Worcester’s iconic backdrop, standing tall alongside us to bring colour and vibrancy to the city.”

She added: “Worcester Stands Tall will be an amazing adventure and is hugely important to St Richard’s Hospice. Not only will it inspire civic pride and conversation and give people an opportunity to get active on a free and fun day out, but we also hope to raise a significant sum towards the compassionate care and support we give to thousands of people each year.”
