May 26 Art of Hope – Stockholm statues in the fight against childhood

Statues and sculptures in Stockholm dressed in eye masks like superheroes in series May 23-29 2022

The Childhood Cancer Foundation conducts the Week of Hope week May 23-29, where Art of Hope is one among other activities that make the Childhood Cancer Foundation work visible and contribute to their fundraising work.

The superheroes
Statues and sculptures around Stockholm will be dressed in eye masks Thursday May 26 like the those worn by superheroes in series. The masks are done in textile material by guerilla-knitters and artists that are given the artistic freedom to express their commitment to the fight for the real heroes – the children!

What happens then?
The guerrilla craft with accompanying photos will be auctioned off along with art works donated by artists in the Art To Go network. Stockholm’s Auction House conducts the auction for the benefit of the Childhood Cancer Foundation.
Help us spread the word! Or join the fight!

Take a selfie!
The Stockholm audience is invited to join a “selfie completion” where we want you to take a selfie with an installed super hero statue and post the photo on Instagram with #gerillaslöjdenssuperhjältar and also e-mail the photo to info@fo-ko.se
A photo jury selects the winning photo where the 1st prize is an original artwork.
