Swans are set to be a familiar sight in Burton upon Trent as an exciting new community arts trail project prepares to take flight in 2020.
As part of the Burton Swans art trail project, 25 uniquely-designed swan sculptures will flock to Burton upon Trent and will be positioned across the town’s streets and open spaces, all sponsored by local businesses including St. Modwen Homes.
The first-ever Burton Swans art trail project is set to go live in July 2020 for ten weeks, to bring schools, businesses, community groups, and artists together in their love for art.
A mobile app has also been created to help visitors plot their route and discover the inspiration behind each of the 25 swan designs and their sponsors.
At the end of the ten weeks, there will be a farewell ‘swan song event’ before the 25 swans are auctioned off in October to raise money for Burton and District YMCA.
