Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail will see 200 life-sized fibreglass Oor Wullie sculptures taking to the streets of Scotland’s major cities to raise vital funds for the nation’s children’s hospital charities. From June 17, for eleven weeks, over 1 million people will take part in this dynamic public art trail. Each of the 200 sculptures will be individually decorated by artists, each reflecting an expression of Scotland’s unique cultural identity.

In addition to the sculptures being individually designed using traditional media, there is real scope to create a visionary, visually bold, expressive and memorable design and offer something truly unique to this and future Wild in Art campaigns.
