Snowdogs by the Sea

This is one of the Brighton Snowdogs, part of the collection 'Snowdogs by the Sea'. I had a proper stroll through town last week and after seeing so many photos on social media, I finally saw these snowdogs up close. There are 45 giant snowdogs and 20 puppies dotted all over Brighton and Hove at the moment. The Martlets Hospice has teamed up with Wild in Art and Penguin to provide this unique outdoor exhibition across the city! Each snowdog has been beautifully designed and decorated by artists and sponsored by local businesses. Isn't it such an amazing collaborative fundraising event! At the end of the exhibition the sculptures will be auctioned and sold to raise funds for the Martlet Hospice. I was sad to read in the news this week that some of these have been vandalised which is such a shame. But if you're visiting before the exhibition ends on 27th November, I recommend going on a little snowdog tour. Of all the snowdogs I have seen this is my favourite in the Pavilion Gardens. His name is 'Merry-Go-Round' and the design captures the essence of Brighton. He is a pop-art inspired carousel horse type decoration. Bright, bold and all the fun of the seaside!

Have you spotted any Snowdogs by the Sea? Do you have anything similar in your town?

  2. I love the Snowdogs. Went on a big walk at the weekend and visited quite a few of them. Despite being the same basic design they all have such unique personality and charm.
