Pride of Paisley Lions :: Shared Description

The following is taken from the (now offline) Pride of Paisley web site.

An absolutely roarsome, lion-inspired, public art trail will become Paisley’s ‘mane’ event for ten weeks, from 9th July – 25th September 2016.

The Pride of Paisley Wild in Art project is being led by Paisley First Business Improvement District (BID) and will form part of the ‘Summer of Fun’ campaign.

Organisers, in partnership with ACCORD and St Vincent’s Hospices, supported by a range of enabling partners (including Renfrewshire Council, University of the West of Scotland and West College Scotland) are planning a FREE, family friendly trail of 25 colourful lion sculptures, painted by local artists, sponsored by local businesses and located across the town centre streets.

Paisley Museum’s popular exhibit – ‘Buddy the Lion’ – has inspired the project, which will also give primary school children the opportunity to decorate mini lion sculptures, for display inside participating businesses.

The event is the BIGGEST public art project in the town’s history and will raise awareness of Paisley’s cultural and heritage assets, attracting new visitors and tourists, as part of the town’s culture-led, regeneration strategy.

Ultimately, all the lion sculptures will be auctioned, with proceeds split between ACCORD Hospice, in Paisley, and St Vincent’s Hospice, in Howwood.
