We went on a gorilla safari today!
In the year that Bristol Zoo Gardens celebrates its 175th anniversary, Wow! Gorillas brings a world class mass public art event to the streets and parks of Bristol this summer. Bringing together residents, visitors, schools, artists and businesses for a truly memorable shared experience for the whole city.
Wow! Gorillas has brought the arts and business communities together for the benefit of the city, showcasing the creative genius that has given Bristol its unique and vibrant culture. Artists have decorated life-size gorillas, sponsored by local businesses which will be placed around the city for 10 weeks between 6 July and 7 September.
Armed with a map and some cameras we set out across the city to find as many as we could. We managed 20 before I ran out of energy so we’ve got lots left to find another day. It was lots of fun and we weren’t the only ones doing it. There were lots of people, families especially, out looking for them. It’s great to see how successful the project has been. If you’re in Bristol over the summer, keep your eyes peeled!
