As the region welcomes the larger than life Elmer’s Great North Parade art trail, we will be showcasing our sponsored sculptures until November.
intu Metrocentre are playing host to the large elephant sculpture as part of the St. Oswald's Children Hospice campaign in partnership with Wild in Art, which sees the individually designed Elmer the Patchwork Elephant sculptures pop up in public spaces throughout the North East.
South Shields artist Katie White used bold and bright colours for intu Metrocentre’s Sweet Treat sculpture. Katie said "I was delighted when I heard I had been picked to be part of Elmer’s Great North Parade with St Oswald’s Hospice and to be sponsored by intu Metrocentre. Bringing Sweet Treat to life and making him ready for the parade has been so much fun and I am so excited that he’s arrived in his new home at intu Metrocentre and for everyone to come and meet him!”
Sweet Treat will be stomping into intu Metrocentre from Wednesday 21 August 2019 until Friday 1 November 2019.
