From this week until Sunday 22 August, Derby residents and visitors will be able to spot a flock of 30 colourful ram sculptures across the city.
Using the symbol of Derby, The Derby Ram Trail is a spectacular new city-wide free sculpture trail that will see 30 five-foot ram sculptures on display outside key city landmarks, such as the new Museum of Making, which opened for the first time last week, Derby Cathedral and The Council House.
The trail started on Thursday 27 May and runs until Sunday 22 August. Organiser Derby Museums, in partnership with Wild in Art, and together with presenting partner Cathedral Quarter BID, hopes the flock of uniquely decorated rams will attract both local residents and visitors from far and wide to discover, and re-discover the city, after lockdown as well as making art accessible to all.
With their bold prints and eye-catching colours, each ram has been decorated one of 28 local, national and emerging artists and each is sponsored by a local business, making the trail deeply rooted to Derby. The flock of rams will showcase a huge range of artistic talent, with all forms of art, from illustration to graffiti, being celebrated. Since March 2020, the artists have been busy transferring their 2D designs onto their five-foot 3D sculptures.
