Gromit Unleashed hits Hong Kong on Monday 21st July!
This week, it's all about Gromit Unleashed Hong Kong! For the first time outside the UK, 70 Gromit Unleashed sculptures have come together to create a unique exhibition at ELEMENTS mall in Hong Kong, with each Gromit individually designed and decorated by an array of top designers, celebrities and international brands – including four designs from Aardman Animations!
"The Greatest Dog Show on Earth” in Hong Kong features a display of 5ft and 3ft high Gromit sculptures, presented on a magnificent, two-tiered carousel; a Wallace & Gromit storyboard area − and at the centre of the exhibit is a statuesque, 4 metre high Gromit sculpture ‘G.R.M.T 02’, designed by the one and only Gavin Strange!
The exhibition is running from 21st July until 31st August, after which the sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal and children’s art programmes in hospitals across Hong Kong.
Look out for more information coming soon on our website and Facebook page! We'll be posting lots of lovely photos, along with exciting film content...Watch this space over the next couple of weeks!
