A handful of beautifully decorated rams were shepherded back to the Derby Ram Trail painting space by Middlebrook Transport this morning, following the decision to delay delivery of this world-class art trail due to take place this summer to 2021. This difficult decision has been taken as a precautionary measure to help minimise the spread of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) and the social distancing measures currently in place potentially being extended. We look forward to bringing this fantastic event to our city streets the spring/summer of 2021 and we will share a new launch date in due course.
Tony Butler, Executive Director, Derby Museums said: “The Derby Ram Trail will come to the streets of Derby next year when we can really make the most of the opportunity to bring people together to enjoy the trail and take pride in their city, and we want to thank all our fabulous sponsors and artists for their continuing support to make this happen.”
Charlie Langhorne, Co-founder and Managing Director or Wild in Art said: “We look forward to seeing everyone out on the streets once again for the Derby Ram Trail next year, enjoying time with friends and family and discovering the many wonderfully painted ram sculptures. In the meantime, while we await the return of art trails in the real world, trail audiences can join us in creating our big virtual art trail – wildinartworld.com.”
