Artist Opportunity – Horsing Around: A Sculpture Trail Around North Lincolnshire

This summer 20 horse sculptures decorated by artists will be appearing across North Lincolnshire. 10 life size horses will trot up in our parks, outside our historic buildings and even in cafes! A further 10 miniatures horses will ride into the grounds of Normanby Hall for you to find. Local schools and community groups will work with artists to plan the designs for the sculptures.

We hope the art trail will foster a sense of local pride and offer a unique opportunity to people from near and far to get involved, get outside and learn more about our area.

When the maneattraction (sorry we couldn’t resist!)… has finished the legacy of the project will live on. The sculptures will be offered to the community groups and schools who created to them. If the schools and community groups choose to, the sculptural work will be auctioned to vital raise funds for the Mayor’s chosen charities, Hope House and Macmillan Cancer Support.

How to Get Involved

Without artists, our horses will remain blank sculptures. Join the art trail, connect with the community and have your work seen by thousands of people!

We are actively encouraging submissions from the local and regional arts community. Artists are welcomed in any medium – traditional to new media, fine art to illustrations, mosaic to street art. Whatever your art form, we’re keen for the sculpture trail to be a celebration of the diversity of visual arts.

Please download the brief for full details of the opportunity and how to submit work for consideration.
