May 26 Art of Hope – Stockholm statues
in the fight against childhood
The Childhood Cancer Foundation conducts The Week of Hope May 23-29, where Art of Hope is one among other activities that make the foundation's work visible and contribute to their fundraising work.
Statues and sculptures around Stockholm will be dressed in eye masks like the those
worn by superheroes in series. The masks are done in textile material by guerilla
knitters and artists that are given the artistic freedom to express their commitment to
the fight for the real heroes – the children!
What happens then?
The guerrilla craft with accompanying photos will be auctioned off along with art
works donated by artists in the Art To Go network. Stockholm's Auction House
conducts the auction for the benefit of the Childhood Cancer Foundation.
Help us spread the word!
Take a selfie!
The Stockholm audience is invited to join a “selfie completion” where we want you to take a selfie with an installed super hero statue and post the photo on Instagram with #gerillaslöjdenssuperhjältar and then e-mail the photo to email@example.com
A photo jury selects the winning photo where the 1st prize is an original artwork.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to have all information
and the list of selected statues and sculptures to choose from.
