Norwich Gorilla Art

If you don't fancy the journey to Bristol for Gromit Unleashed (CLICK) how about GoGoGorillas in Norwich? A lorryload of life-sized gorillas and babies have invaded the city to form a public art trail. Shown is Norfolk artist Kate Munro's Bling Kong (2013) at stop 32 on the eight-mile trail around the city (CLICK). The Mercury Phoenix Trust threw a wobbler over Mik Richardson's Freddie Mercury lookalike Radio Go Go gorilla, claiming a breach of copyright, and demanded it be removed from the trail (CLICK). Spoilsports. The whole thing is in aid of charities Break and the Born Free Foundation. The gorillas will be auctioned on 3 October at The Forum, Norwich. CLICK for details.
