… UP the UooUoo Trail!
(Part 1 of the Series)
Launched on 20 January up until 21 March 2021, hundreds of UooUoo sculptures will be dotting the streets, laneways and iconic public places of Melbourne and Geelong. A UooUoo (pronounced you-you) is an imaginary creature that is somewhat shaped like a wombat.
Entitled Me and UooUoo: The RCH Anniversary Art Trail… these colourful sculptures are all uniquely designed by talented Australian artists. After the event finishes and have entertained children and adults alike, these sculptures will be auctioned off to raise funds for the Royal Children’s Hospital.
