This summer a giant pride of lions will be transformed by some of the world’s leading contemporary artists and designers to create a magnificent public art sculpture trail across Windsor to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria
The life-size fibreglass lions will be transformed by leading artists and designers from around the world in a wide range of styles, from fine art to mosaics, street art and illustrations to abstract designs.
The high-profile designers include iconic fashion designer Dame Zandra Rhodes, Kaffe Fassett MBE, Lyora Pissarro, Andrew Logan, Anna Kompaniets, Amrit Singh, Craig Wheatley and Martin Brown, as well as less well known and amateur artists who have had the opportunity to submit their lion designs.
Lisa Todd, the event’s Creative Director says, “We are over the moon that the Lions of Windsor 2019 sculpture trail has attracted some of the most famous names in art and design from around the world and encouraged new and amateur artists to send us their submissions. Windsor is already a tourist hot spot and we are confident that the beautifully decorated lion sculptures will make Windsor and the surrounding area the destination event of the summer for residents, visitors and tourists.”
