Oor Wullie Bucket Trail | V&A Museum of Design, Dundee
April 12, 2016
Oor Wullie’s Bucket Trail is a major public arts event that will see the streets of Dundee and beyond come to life with a spectacle of colour of 50 giant Oor Wullie sculptures in summer 2016.
The project, a collaboration between The ARCHIE Foundation, DC Thomson and Wild in Art will capture the hearts and minds of the public and encourage us all to become ‘tourists in our own city’ and attract visitors.
The sculptures will be on show for 10 weeks before going to auction to help raise funds for The ARCHIE Foundation’s Tayside Appeal to create a twin theatre suite for the children’s hospital.
V&A Museum of Design Dundee invites graduate designers from all disciplines, either Scottish or trained in Scotland, to submit designs for the opportunity to create an Oor Wullie statue inspired by V&A Dundee.
We want you to really ‘think outside the bucket’, be imaginative and creative, and transform our Oor Wullie into a spectacular, inspirational design the public can marvel at.
