Me and UooUoo: Free Public Art Trail
December 1, 2020 @ 8:00 am - April 30, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
Me and UooUoo is coming to St Kilda Foreshore!
From 20 January to 21 March 2021, the cities of Melbourne and Geelong will be taken over by one hundred UooUoo (pronounced you-you) sculptures, each one uniquely designed by Australia’s most talented artists, will form walking trails of imagination and adventure for all to enjoy.
As a special preview of the new FREE public art trail, six UooUoos will be popping up across Melbourne from 7 – 30 April 2021 – including St Kilda!
St Kilda will be home to Melita Luzzu by Audrey Buttigieg Cardona located on the foreshore near St Kilda Pier, in front of Beachcomber Cafe, St Kilda Sea Baths.
To mark the 150th anniversary of The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH), the City of Port Phillip has partnered with the Royal Children’s Hospital to locate fourteen sculptures temporarily around the City. Each ‘UooUoo’ will be placed in laneways, streets, parks and public spaces, forming walking trails throughout Melbourne and Geelong. When the art trail finishes, the sculptures will then be auctioned to raise funds for The Royal Children’s Hospital.
St Kilda Art Preview: 7 – 13 December, 2020
St Kilda Public Art Trail: 20 January to 30 April, 2021
