In Chester this summer you will find 62 rhino's throughout the city and surrounding areas. It is a public art exhibition which has been organised by Chester Renaissance and Wild in Art. I'm planning to find and photograph them all between 5th July (today) and the 12th September. I'm thinking that the two most elusive will be no. 62, which is 207.6 miles away from Chester, at Euston station and no. 35, which will start on Cuppin street but will be moving around, fingers crossed I manage to catch up with both of these.
As today was the official start of rhinomania we thought we'd aim to find a few. Decided to head out of the city and pick up the rhino's in Ellesmere Port Arcades and Cheshire Oaks. So here are the first six I've managed to photograph.
No. 51 - Brutus.
Artist: Tamzin Harris, Sponsor: The Port Arcades, Location: The Port Arcades, Mercer Way, Ellesmere Port.
No.53 - While Stocks Last
Artist: Sara Corley, Sponsor Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, Location Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet
No. 54 - The Wallower
No. 52 - Rhino 999
No. 55 - The Ladybug
No.56 - Cheshire Set
Artist: Anthony Braniff, Sponsor: Doubletree by Hilton, Location: Doubletreeby Hilton, Warrington Road, Hoole.
I can't wait to go looking for some more.
Ooops, I nearly forgot. I thought I'd have a rhino themed giveaway. So all I need you to do is to have a rhino themed blog post between now and September 12th. Once you've blogged send me a comment, on any of my rhinomania posts with a link to you blog and i'll pick a random entry on September 13th.
