Canterbury artists have joined forces with Kent Wildlife Trust to celebrate the Wilder Blean Project, a pioneering initiative in which bison will roam West Blean and Thorndon Woods.
Over the last year students from the University of Creative Arts have been working on sculptures which have been placed on the Wild Art Trail within West Blean and Thorndon Woods. The free exhibition showcased the work of seven artists keen to celebrate the imminent arrival of four bison into the woodland.
Included within the exhibition is a “Bison-Hotel” by Rob Smith. The impressive wooden sculpture visually represents a bison as a piece of art, but will also become a home for bugs and other wildlife, artistically replicating the work of a real-life bison.
