On 27 May – 22 August 2021, Derby Museums in partnership with Wild in Art, are bringing a flock of 30 colourful and unique 5ft rams on a trail around the city of Derby.
The ram sculpture is based on the mythical Derby Ram from the 18th Century song, which according to legend was ten yards high with enormous horns and a huge flowing fleece.
Each ram has been designed and decorated by a different well-known or emerging artist, creating a multi-coloured spectacle throughout the city. The trail will appeal to young and old alike and encourages both residents and visitors to have fun exploring and be inspired and enchanted by the sculptures. The Ram Trail is perfect for a walking tour of Derby city centre.
At the end of the trail each of the rams will be auctioned off to raise funds for Derby Museums’ Endowment Campaign, helping to secure the future of Derby Museums for everyone for years to come. Every pound raised at the auction will be matched pound for pound by a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
