Social Media Analytics suite Brandwatch will be the headline sponsor for Marlet’s third art trail. The trail aims to raise over £350k supporting end of life care for the terminally ill.
The Brighton and Hove Art trail runs from 9th September to 5th of November 2023. It will feature 42 Shaun the Sheep sculptures spread across the city. All 42 sculptures were showcased at fabrica Gallery on Monday, where sponsors were paired with an artist of their choosing.
More than 25 local businesses, including Brighton and Hove Busses, Donatello, and Green Insurance have already sponsored a sculpture. But with 15 sculptures still up for sponsorship there is still time for your company to get involved.
The 42 local artists include contemporary artist George Fox, who was sponsored by Fatboy Slim. Also, Sarah Arnett who unveiled her second sculpture last night, following her September release: ‘regency Shaun’.
Brandwatch’s Chief Brand Officer Katja Garrood explained their support of the programme by saying:
“Martlets is a fantastic organisation doing incredibly important work. As a global company we still remain respectful of our roots. We believe it’s important to be part of and give back to the local community. We are so honoured to headline this art trail, to play our part in putting Shaun on his seaside pedestal,”
The art trail is brought to the city in association with global public art specialists Wild in Art and BAFTA® award-winning studio Aardman. For more information and to download a sponsorship pack go to www.shaunbythesea.co.uk.
