Calling all Victorian Artists! Design submissions are now open for Me and UooUoo: The RCH150 Anniversary Art Trail. Don't miss your opportunity to be involved in one of Victoria's biggest public art events in 2020.
Submit your designs to transform UooUoo, a specially commissioned 1.5m sculpture by Melbourne artist Alexander Knox.
One hundred unique UooUoos will find homes in laneways, streets, parks and public spaces from September to November 2020, forming two sections of a walking trail across Melbourne and Geelong all in support of The Royal Children's Hospital (RCH) during its 150th anniversary.
Designs are welcomed in any medium – traditional to new media, fine art to illustrations, graffiti and mosaic. Whatever the art form, we want you to add drama, fun and a unique creative flare to Me and UooUoo!
