The Moor Otters Arts Trail will be coming to Dartmoor on 2 April 2021!
81 stunning sculptures of otters with cubs – all designed and decorated by local and national artists – will have ‘holiday homes’ with businesses, community groups, and in public areas across Dartmoor, in gateway towns, and in villages… and we’ve been tipped the wink that there will be one or two otters visiting us in Chagford!
Hugely popular since its launch in 2017, the Moor Otters Arts Trail is a feel-good public arts project that gathers up young and old for an amazing journey of learning and discovery, creating stories and making memories.
This summer 81 decorated Otter with Cub sculptures will be released onto Dartmoor to create four arts trails, standing tall on plinths waiting to be spotted.
At the end of the summer ‘otter-spotters’ as well as art collectors and individuals, will have the opportunity to give their favourite Otter a new home when they are auctioned to raise funds for Donate for Dartmoor. Find out more here.
