Squirrel 

Awareness art collection 

In 2017, Quays Culture in Manchester entrusted the visionary artist Tim Boin with a unique mission: to craft an oversized outdoor exhibition capable of conveying crucial narratives through the medium of art. Tim's response to this challenge was truly extraordinary – he envisioned and meticulously crafted four monumental sculptures: the Squirrel, Bear, Whale, and Bee.

Within the confines of Tim Boin's studio, these magnificent sculptures came to life, each standing as a testament to the artist's unwavering dedication and profound commitment to the cause. As night fell, these sculptures underwent a captivating transformation: they were beautifully bathed in light. Employing the art of projection mapping, Tim Boin infused these sculptures with mesmerizing visual narratives, making them come alive as captivating nocturnal storytellers.

Fast forward to 2020, and Awareness Art, an initiative founded by the Groei & Bloei Foundation, took up the mantle of this noble undertaking. These sculptures, including the elegant 'Graceful Squirrel,' became beacons of awareness, shining a spotlight on the pressing challenges faced by these animals due to human-driven habitat destruction.

Standing before the 'Graceful Squirrel,' you are not merely observing an imposing sculpture; you are immersed in a profound narrative. This sculpture encapsulates stories of the intricate lives of squirrels, their role in the forest ecosystem, and the urgent need to safeguard their natural habitats.

The 'Graceful Squirrel' transcends its significant physical form to deliver a powerful message. It serves as a call to action, an invitation to contemplate our role in the conservation of the natural world, and a reminder of our collective responsibility as stewards of our planet.

This remarkable sculpture is more than art; it is a symbol of hope, a beacon of awareness, and a tribute to the enduring resilience of nature. It beckons us to stand together in preserving the world we share with these remarkable creatures, ensuring that they continue to thrive in our ecosystems for generations to come."
