Explore, Learn & Celebrate

Thursday 16th June until Thursday 25th August

Welcome to a spectacular public art event that will bound across the great cities of Winchester and Southampton in the summer of 2022. It’s time to leap out of hibernation with this exciting interactive art event brought to you by The Murray Parish Trust and Wild In Art.

For ten weeks, Winchester and Southampton streets, parks and public spaces will be brought to life with an exhibition of magnificent hares. Each giant sculpture will be individually designed and beautifully created, showcasing the wealth of artistic talent the county has to offer – while positively contributing to the economic, cultural and social life of the area.

This will be the biggest art event that Winchester and Southampton have ever seen, creating a free, fun, family-friendly trail of discovery for everyone to enjoy whilst exploring our great cities. This is an opportunity for locals and visitors to be inspired, get creative and celebrate the history and culture of Hampshire.
