Creativity and colour will mark the 150th anniversary of The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) with the help of 100 Australian artists taking part in Me and UooUoo: The RCH150 Anniversary Art Trail.
The cross-section of creatives, including First Nation artists, street artists, sculptors, painters and up-and-coming talent have started bringing their UooUoo sculptures to life in the Me and UooUoo: The RCH150 Anniversary Art Trail.
The 100 UooUoo sculptures will be sprawled throughout streets, laneways and parks in Melbourne and Geelong, fostering a sense of community to celebrate the hospital’s special milestone year and raise much-needed funds for Victoria’s sickest children.
“Me and UooUoo offers the unique opportunity for the community to be involved in celebrating the incredible heritage of this world-leading institution,” said Sue Hunt, Chief Executive Officer of the RCH Foundation.
“Most importantly, it provides a sense of unity and aspiration, so that we can persevere through these challenging times together. We were amazed by the high volume and quality of entries sent in by artists from all across Australia, and now we’re entering the next stage of delivery. The RCH Foundation is so excited, and we can’t wait to bring Me and UooUoo to life in the months ahead.”
Artists join Alexander Knox known by RCH audiences for his much-loved sculpture Creature who lives on Main Street at the hospital.
