52. Butterfly Concerto

52. Butterfly Concerto

Unicornfest is a fantastic public art trail of over 60 large unicorns and 40 smaller foals bringing magic to the streets of Bristol.

Butterfly Concerto is next to St Mary Redcliffe.

BR Logo

I did not know this. The diagonal lines on the BR logo are not parallel. They taper outwards so they “look right”.

What’s the sculpture?

On a recent visit to Ashton Court I was reminded of this piece of bronze art that was on display at the front of the mansion building.

There wasn’t anything that I could see that said more about the art, so no idea about the title or the sculptor?

What’s the sculpture?

I quite like it though.

Gromit Unleashed 2020

So 2020 sees another trail featuring Aardman’s characters from Wallace and Gromit. This one though is much shorter and all the sculptures are at the Mall at Cribbs Causeway.

Before lockdown we managed to find them all within a couple of hours.

15. Postie McGraw

At the Mall there is a Gromit trail.

This is Postie McGraw.

Featuring Wallace, Gromit, Shaun the Sheep and Feathers McGraw, The Grand Adventure will see 15 sculptures pup-up in various locations around The Mall – launching on Saturday, 24 October. You’ll be able to travel around the world visiting brand new designs, as well as firm favourites from previous trails, each representing a different country.
