I spent much of Thursday walking around Exeter looking out for the Rhinos! It is a modern art project highlighting the plight of rhinos in the wild run by Wild in Art, Torbay Council, Exeter City Council and Paignton Zoo and sponsored by Stagecoach South West. It follows on from a similar project about gorillas held in 2013 – see here. For more details about the Great Big Rhino Trail see here. The project is being hosted in Exeter and Torbay – in total there are 40 full size rhinos and 53 baby ones. Here is a selection of photos of the ones we found in Exeter.
This is Rocking Rhino at Exeter’s Underground Passages. A nice personal story attached to this one. I am a member of the Devon and Exeter Squash Club – the artwork on this rhino was designed by 8 year old Harry Lings, whose father Adam is the owner of the Squash Club. The painting of the design was done by Cat Brewer, a graphic designer and member of the Squash Club!
Finally a Flickr album of all my rhino pictures
A great way to see the City of Exeter and a great way to highlight rhino issues and conservation.
The project runs in Exeter and Torbay until the 9th October.
