Hot Dog - The Big Dog Art Trail

Artist: Donna Newman
Working with schools across the Midlands, Donna seeks to inspire young people by transforming their learning environments with her vibrant artwork. She is a self-proclaimed addict of public art trails and has worked closely with Wild in Art on over 70 sculpture commissions, helping to raise more than £250,000 for charities through their sales. Hot Dog is big, it’s bold and it’s covered in ketchup! A fun play on words, this design transforms the sculpture into a giant hot dog. The larger-than-life smoked sausage, nestled between bread rolls and smothered in mustard, looks good enough to eat.

Sponsor: The Bespoke Guardians Swindon Wildcats & Better (GLL)
The Swindon Wildcats are a professional ice hockey team that play their trade in the NIHL National League, which runs from September all the way through to April each year. The Cats play their home games at the GLL Better Swindon Ice Rink and have a dedicated fanbase who consistently fill out the arena, which generates a unique and not-to-be-missed atmosphere.

Better (GLL) is a not-for-profit charitable social enterprise committed to delivering a better quality of fitness and leisure facilities for everyone. Better (GLL) promotes healthy and active lifestyles, giving communities access to facilities that help improve their health and happiness through participation in activities. In Swindon, Better (GLL) runs the following centres: Link Centre & Swindon Ice Arena; Health Hydro; Delta Tennis Centre; Croft Sports Centre; Haydon Centre and Gym.

Swindog Auction

After the trail finishes the Swindogs will be auctioned to raise vital funds for Julia’s House, your local children’s hospice charity. If you have sponsored a uniquely designed and decorated big balloon dog sculpture this will be your chance to adopt your Swindog.  Then it can go to its forever home where it can be enjoyed for many years to come!
