Follow Luke Jerram’s new art trail around Gloucester – with 31 sculptures and installations to discover across the city.

New art trail, Of Earth and Sky, is coming to Gloucester with 31 installations curated by artist Luke Jerram appearing across the city, from Monday 24 August to Sunday 1 November 2020.

Of Earth and Sky features words and poetry submitted by Gloucestershire residents, curated by artist Luke Jerram and poet JPDL, transformed into large-scale works of art using stencils and sculptures. The artwork will form a trail of over 30 locations across Gloucester.

The installation aims to help people appreciate parks and outdoor spaces, which have been especially important during lockdown, as well as encouraging visitors to see Gloucester differently and also to spread words of hope from the local community.

All the sites in the art trail have been chosen to ensure they are accessible to all and that social distancing can be maintained while viewing the artwork.
