The Big Hoot farewell

Well done to Bearwood mosaic artist Caroline Jariwala whose splendid mosaic owl was identified as one of the highlights during Birmingham's Big Hoot. The 89 individually sculptured owls were dotted around a 94 mile trail around Birmingham and its suburbs, attracting visitors from across the country.

Last weekend the owls were gathered together for one last time when they went on display at Eastside Park next to Millennium Point in the city. Then, last night all 89 owls were auctioned off for charity. At the end of bidding a fantastic sum of half a million pounds had been raised for Birmingham Children's Hospital with Caroline's colourful mosaic owl raising £10,200 of that.

Well done Caroline, we're proud of you!

    I’d love to see a mosaic “Bearwood Bear” in front of the Corks Club as a piece of Bearwood public art celebrating the fantastic creative people we have in BEARWOOD…I spoke with Jackie Chana at Oooops Gallery in Sandon Road who told me it is shutting such a shame
