Sheffield’s largest public art event The Herd of Sheffield is coming to a close. The elephant sculptures that took part will soon be auctioned off to raise money for The Children’s Hospital Charity. Yesterday I started to share my top 10 elephants of the trail starting with numbers 10 through 6. Now it is time for my top 5.Read My Top 10 Herd of Sheffield Elephants (the Top 5)
The Street Art Sheffield Blog
A blog about all things street art, graffiti and Sheffield.
So the summer is over and the elephants that have occupied the streets of Sheffield over the last few months are starting to disappear ready to be auctioned off for charity. I have been following the trail of the Herd of Sheffield throughout the summer months and taking photos of each sculpture with the help of my partner. Each elephant has been added to this site’s Herd of Sheffield section to exist as a constant reminder of Sheffield’s largest (to date) public art exhibition.Read My Top 10 Herd of Sheffield Elephants (#10 - #6)
