A Minerva Owl comes to Bath Quay.
The owl, called ‘DigitOwl’ is one of 85 individually decorated super-sized owls that have been dotted around the city.
Created by local artist, John Gould, the Bath Quays’ owl is completely interactive. Walkers and cyclists will find DigitOwl at the top of Bath Quays Waterside park steps, near Avon Street carpark. By scanning the QR code on the owl, visitors can see the Bath Quays space in Virtual Reality.
Many have already been enjoying the wildflowers and riverbank at Bath Quays and with thousands expected to view the owls over the next few months, it will further highlight the transformation of the riverside.
Minerva’s Owls of Bath 2018 is a major public art sculpture trail featuring owl sculptures displayed across Bath and the surrounding region from 25 June–10 September.
The interactive sculpture trail celebrates Bath’s Roman heritage and marks the 10th anniversary of the King Bladud’s Pigs sculpture trail. Following an auction, all profits will be donated to local charities.
The Owls of Bath trail maps will be available from outlets across Bath from 25th June when the trail starts as well as the free Owls of Bath interactive app. The map page of the website will go live the weekend before the event.
There will be QR codes to download the Owls of Bath app on every Owl plinth. For more information about Bath Quays visit www.bathquays.co.uk
