The 89 owl sculptures have appeared in Birmingham. Each owl sculpture is 5ft 5ins tall. The Big Hoot has brought businesses, artists, schools and the local community together to create a public art trail of stunning owl sculptures on display across Birmingham from 20 July until 27 September. The best way to see amazing owls is to follow the trail around the city and see how many you can spot. In October the owls will be auctioned to raise money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

Adam Parker Smith’s first solo exhibition in New York City. It was inspired by the execution scene in Hemingway’s For Whom the Bell Tolls. The heads are impaled on stakes or lying on the ground which is strewn with roses. As guilt, fascination and loyalty encroach, flawless heroines confront heart ache, fools distinguish beauty from the grotesque and the wretched mourn the loss of irreproachable purity.
