From the Gromit Unleashed Web site:
Led by the internationally renowned Aardman Animations, Gromit Unleashed is a public art exhibition in the city of Bristol. Giant fibreglass sculptures of Gromit, standing 5ft tall, will be 'unleashed' onto the streets of Bristol and the surrounding area.
Each sculpture will be individually designed and created by invited artists, creating a trail of seventy unique pieces of art and will form an art exhibition for ten weeks over the summer of 2013.
At the end of the public art exhibition, the sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit's Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children's Hospital Charity.
