Last week saw the culmination of Birmingham’s ‘The Big Sleuth’, with the auctioning of the sun bear sculptures that had graced the streets of the city this summer. The evening was a huge success with a grand total of £257,300 being raised for Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.
With so many beautiful bears up for grabs, painted by hugely talented artists, I was absolutely stunned that Buzz was the top selling bear; selling for an amazing £9000!
I’d like to send a big thank you to the anonymous bidder for their generosity.
I’d also like to thank all at Wild in Art & the Big Sleuth team for staging yet another fantastic trail; and of course the University of Birmingham for sponsoring Buzz and therefore allowing me to be part this wonderful event.
