Get excited this summer as Derby Museums partners with Wild in Art to bring you the Derby Ram Trail; an amazing public art event, featuring over 30 decorated ram sculptures in a trail threading across Derby city centre. Can you visit them all? The trail starts at the Museum and Art Gallery where you can pick up your trail map, browse our fantastic range of merchandise and check out the ram located at the museum.
Mini Ram Trail competition launched for Derby schools
As part of the Derby Ram Trail taking place this summer, Derby Museums together with Education sponsors Rolls-Royce, are inviting Derby city schools (Primary, Secondary and SEND) to take part in a cross-school art competition, giving pupils the opportunity to get their own mini ram on a trail around the Museum and Art Gallery.
A downloadable resource pack is available to all city schools which includes a template for the young people to design their own ram in 2D. Schools will then judge their pupil’s designs in school and determine which young artists will be invited to paint up one of the mini 20cm 3D rams that will be entered into a cross-school competition being judged at the end of May.
Derby Museums will then shortlist up to 30 rams to put in a Mini Ram Trail at Derby Museum and Art Gallery alongside contemporary artists and high-profile exhibits for 12 weeks on public display.
Full details of the competition together with the resource pack are available to download from the Derby Ram Trail website: www.derbyramtrail.org.
