Maxwell & Williams is proud to be a principal partner of 'Me and UooUoo'
So, what is Me & UooUoo?To celebrate the Royal Children’s Hospital 150th birthday, the RCH Foundation has joined together with 100 talented Australian artists to create an interactive art adventure.
Across Melbourne and Geelong, the one hundred UooUoo sculptures will be dotted throughout laneways, beaches, streets, parks and other public spaces to create a walking art exhibition, whilst raising vital funds for the amazing work of the RCH.
UooUoo (pronounced you-you) has been created by award-winning Melbourne artist Alexander Knox. UooUoo is an imaginary Australian creature whose shape is loosely drawn from the wombat and dugong. A mysterious being, UooUoo is highly empathetic, playful and brave, but can be mischievous at times.
We’re excited to have six of our artist collaborators included in the ‘herd’ and are proud to have joined as a principal partner of the event. Making art accessible to everyone and becoming a part of many moments and daily rituals in homes throughout Australia is a sentiment we are proud to support.
We encourage everyone to travel the trail and discover each and every UooUoo from January 20th through to March 21st, 2021!
