Gromit, Britain’s favourite animated dog, is currently to be found wandering the streets of Bristol, where he was first created by the Oscar-winning Nick Park of Aardman Studios.
Gromit Unleashed (http://www.gromitunleashed.org.uk/) is a public art exhibition of 80 giant fibreglass Gromits, each standing 5ft tall, which have been placed in and around Bristol for 10 weeks until 8th September. Each Gromit has been decorated by a different artist, creating a trail of unique pieces of art that will be auctioned after the exhibition to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity.
