Bristol Zoo:" Wow! Gorillas" take to the streets.........

Bristol Zoo is celebrating its 175 Birthday in 2011 and in July the party takes to the streets with a mass public art event featuring more than sixty brightly-coloured, life-size gorilla sculptures that are to be let loose across Bristol’s streets and parks..................

The "Wow! Gorillas" will form a trail around the city, taking in top landmarks such as the Clifton Suspension Bridge, Arnos Vale Cemetery, Corn Street, St Nicholas Market and the cobbled streets of Welsh Back and Queens Square..................

Each "Wow! Gorilla" sculpture has been sponsored by a local business, organisation or charity and each has been decorated in its own unique style by very talented local artists.......
